Register now for the 2010 LibQUAL+® survey cycle using our new platform. LibQUAL+® will launch a new website in January 2010. The new interface features enhancements like LibQUAL+® Lite. All this while our price is frozen!
A short form of the LibQUAL+® survey, LibQUAL+® Lite uses item sampling methods to: (a) gather data on all 22 LibQUAL+® core items, while (b) each individual participant responds to only a subset of items. As a consequence, survey response times are roughly cut in half, while the library still receives data on every survey question!
The LibQUAL+® project was supported in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education's Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) from 2001-2003. Funding to develop a similar protocol for digital libraries is currently provided by NSDL/NSF through August 2004. LibQUAL+®, a partnership between ARL and Texas A&M University, is one of the ARL New Measures Initiatives managed as part of the ARL Statistics and Measurement Program.
If you would like to participate in the 2010 survey, register online at http://www.libqual.org/Register/index.cfm.
To implement your survey between:
* Jan 15 and May 31, 2010 - register no later than May 1, 2010

The website will not be available for collecting survey data outside this timeframe.
For the fifth year, LibQUAL+® is sponsoring an in-kind grant program for participants in the 2010 LibQUAL+® survey. A total of up to five institutions will be awarded grants to participate in the 2010 survey. Our goal is to offer one grant for every 50 registered libraries.
Two application deadlines: June 15, 2009 and December 14, 2009.
