Student survey – check your email!

The library distributed a survey to students via email this week. We want you to tell us what you think of the library space and what services and information resources you need.  This information is very important as the library plans for the future.  Please complete the survey by Tuesday, February 15.

As an added incentive, we are offering five gift certificates for $25 each to Amazon.   After the Student Survey, you will be given the option to go to an additional site to enter your name and e-mail.   That information will only be used for the drawing, keeping your Student Survey input anonymous.

So, students, check your UNMC email for the survey link! And thank you!
