LibQUAL+® Lite in 2010!

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.
