In March 2016, we conducted a survey of all University of Richmond law students, seeking responses to questions about the library, our technology and campus communications. We followed this with two focus group meetings over lunch. All feedback is very valuable, and it will help guide our services and use of resources over the coming weeks and months.
Thanks to all students who participated in this survey and our focus group sessions. We have already started reviewing all replies, discussing how we can use this feedback to benefit our law students.
As an incentive and form of thanks for completing the survey, we offered four Amazon gift certificates to student participants. Chosen at random, these students each received a certificate: Kelly Brandon, L’18, Kate Frisch, L’17, Matt Koningsor, L’18, Kate Miceli, L’18
Following are two charts showing frequency of library use as well as the top five reasons for using the library. We are excited that more than 44% of students use the library daily, and nearly a third of students use the library four to six times each week. Because every law student has a personal study carrel in the library, it’s no surprise that carrel study tops the list for reasons to visit the law library.
Good luck in the rest of the semester, and follow updates on this blog, on the @URLawSchool Twitter account, and around the University of Richmond School of Law campus.
