In the spring of 2012, the Boston University Libraries surveyed BU graduate students to determine their use of and satisfaction with library services and resources. The response rate was over 30%, indicating that our graduate students care about our library system.

The survey responses have clarified some areas to improve and also suggest some strategic directions we will pursue, such as enhancing digital access to electronic journals. Here is a link to the Graduate Student Library Survey Report 2012.

This survey followed a survey of the faculty in the fall of 2010, and is part of a planned cycle of faculty, graduate student, and undergraduate surveys every three years.  The Assessment Committee also uses other methods, such as focus groups and website statistics, to support data driven decision making in the libraries.
