LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 11, 2022) — Have an idea on what is missing from your library experience at the University of Kentucky? Don’t miss your opportunity to speak up. Students who share their thoughts on UK’s library service can enter to win a USB mini-projector or noise-canceling headphones.

During Fall 2022, UK Libraries will be seeking campus feedback about library service quality by running a brief, locally developed survey, starting this week through Nov. 18. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. The survey may be accessed here.

Data and comments collected in this survey will help UK Libraries understand faculty and students’ satisfaction with, as well as perceptions of, a variety of library services, including their impact on academic and research success. By participating in this survey, you will directly impact library services and spaces, including access to information (print and electronic resources), customer service, facilities, equipment and collections. All responses are collected anonymously.

Previous library satisfaction survey results have led to improvements in UK Libraries’ website, ease-of-access to electronic resources as well as the creation of the Thomas D. Clark Graduate Study.

As the premier research library in the Commonwealth, UK Libraries empowers lifelong learners to discover, create and connect by providing ever-expanding access to quality information and collaborating with academic and creative communities worldwide to advance knowledge, enhance scholarship and preserve the history and culture of the Commonwealth. More information about UK Libraries can be found on its website 

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
