GALILEO Annual User Survey

The 2022 GALILEO Annual User Survey is open! It will run Nov. 3 – 30, closing at 11:59 p.m. on the last day of this month. The annual survey has been conducted since 1996 and is important both in raising awareness about GALILEO and in helping us know your concerns and ideas for the future.

We would like to hear from a lot of users in different library communities. Given conferences, standardized testing and Thanksgiving holiday closures, we hope the extra time allows everyone the chance to participate in the survey.

Completed entries have the chance to win an Amazon gift card. Entries must be completely filled out to qualify for the drawing.
