Explanation of Procedures
If you agree to take the survey, you will be asked 16 questions (plus six demographic questions) to determine your level of satisfaction with various aspects of the KSU Library System. You may skip any question for any reason, but too many skipped questions will invalidate your survey.

By completing the survey you will have the chance to win one of several incentive prizes including a Library Media Night, Amazon Echo Dot’s, and KSU bookstore gift baskets.. In order to win, you will need to enter a valid KSU email address as prompted by the survey. However, entering your email is strictly voluntary. It is only necessary in order to be entered to win a prize. Participation in the survey will help the KSU Library System understand and better meet your needs.

Confidentiality
Survey participation will be kept strictly confidential. If submitting an email address, the address and survey responses will be separated once you finish the survey. The KSU Library System will not be able to associate email addresses with individual responses.

Inclusion Criteria for Participation
