Library Assessment

The Assessment Committee

The Assessment Committee conducts qualitative and quantitative research in all BU Libraries to better understand faculty and student scholarly needs. The reports are used to support data driven decision making in the libraries

The 2019 survey is currently in progress, running for three weeks during the spring semester. The 2019 and 2016 assessment surveys include faculty, undergraduate and graduate students. Prior surveys addressed these groups individually. The surveys are built in Qualtrics and analyzed in NVivo.

Using the results of the 2016 survey, we are continuing to work on issues like improving the ease of logging in across library platforms, better availability of streaming media, increasing access to Asian language materials, and reevaluating other library services.

Our reports from previous years are archived and are listed on the navigation to the right.
