McIntyre Library Solicits Students'
Opinions about Needs and Changes

RELEASED: March 9, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — The McIntyre Library at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is implementing a variety of new tools, including surveys and polls, to gain better insight into students' needs.

Each week the library will be posting a short one- to two-question poll on the library Web site, in the McIntyre Library News section of the library's home page, asking students' opinions about ideas for new services, collections or changes in policy.

Another option for student feedback could include the implementation of a McIntyre Library Advisory Group, which would include graduate and undergraduate student representation, said Christopher Cox, assistant professor of library services and interim director of McIntyre Library.

Some of the options for new services or facilities currently up for discussion include installing a coffee cart in the library, a new book drop on upper campus and the potential implementation of two silent floors.

"While we'll still need to take other factors into account, if students ask for it, we'll do our best to make it happen," Cox said, adding that student opinion will be the deciding factor in changes such as the coffee cart and silent floors.

To make sure their opinions are taken into consideration on the new measures, students are requested to vote on the online polls or surveys, Cox said. While the surveys and polls are geared toward students, faculty and staff are also welcome to participate.

For more information on McIntyre Library services, including the new polls and surveys, contact Cox at coxcn@uwec.edu.
