Faculty and student biennial surveys workshop

Workshop participants will work in small groups to develop and prioritize actions DUL staff might take in response to findings from the 2018 biennial library student and faculty surveys. When registering, please indicate your preferred groups from the following options:

  1. Making DUL a safe space (e.g., implement signage emphasizing DUL's support for and belief in equity and diversity; have regular exhibits of books, art, or special collections themed to diversity, consider ways to make LL2 less "scary")
  2. Signage and wayfinding (e.g., create new signage identifying what self-checkout stations are, implement signage to promote ways for users to get help from staff when in various library spaces)
  3. Facilities, spaces, furniture (e.g., explore ways to expand quiet study spaces, enforce existing food and noise policies, examine a number of requests for new furniture)
  4. Policies and staff interaction with users (e.g., discuss effectiveness of current carrel policies) 
  5. Collections (e.g., examine requests for additions to the collections, increase the leisure ebook and audiobook collections in Overdrive, purchase print versions of ebooks)
  6. Access and discovery of online materials & DUL web interfaces (e.g., many people are dissatisfied with vendor platforms for ebooks and rules for ebook usage, look through requests for new features in the catalog and for the website)
  7. Marketing and advertising (e.g., clarify and advertise the range of Open Educational Resources available to faculty, examine services that high numbers of users are unaware the library offers)
  8. Equipment and technology (e.g., examine requests for new lendable technology, new workflows for technology in bookable library rooms)
