Library Reference Desk where you ask questions

Our Friendly Reference Staff

This week has been National Library Week where we celebrate all things library.  Recently we did surveys of faculty and students. We aren’t ready with a full report, but in honor of National Library Week, we thought we’d share some of the things you said. Thank-you!

  • “I think you guys do a great job!”
  • “Kirkwood and its Librarians have made Kirkwood’s Library Services a dynamic and professional resource for students and instructors to teach students’ how to conduct scholarly research, which is a skill most students will need as they progress through the rest of their education.”
  • “I always get great service from your staff!”
  • “I have found the library staff and library resources to be very helpful for students and faculty. Thank you for your commitment to helping students.”
  • “Thanks for all the help everyone. I have always had such pleasant and knowledgeable staff assisting me when I call or stop by. If there is anything that is ever lacking in services it is more than compensated by staff!”
  • “I think our library and staff are fantastic. Any time I’ve brought students for any reason, it’s been exactly what we needed and very helpful. It’s a welcoming and useful place to be.”
  • “I absolutely love your research databases so I really hope students do not lose access to this.”
  • “Nope. Just keep innovating, looking for solutions, and asking for feedback.”
  • “Best of luck with the budget cuts, you all do a great job!”
  • “I use the library website regularly and use it in my classrooms. I like the search box on the homepage: easy to use. The online books, articles, videos, etc. that I use for classes or show to students are a great resource. I also sometimes use the LibGuides. I don’t visit the physical library on the CR campus often (almost everything I need is available online!), but appreciate the fact that I can direct students there to use group study rooms, computer printing, etc.”
  • “I think Library Services are exemplary.”
  • “Keep up the great work! I have been nothing but impressed with Kirkwood’s library system.”
  • “I have been using Interlibrary loan and have been thoroughly impressed with the efficiency and am thankful this benefit is offered for staff/faculty/students.”
  • “I send all of my students there to check out a book for a report. The library is very supportive by purchasing any book I recommend to them.”
  • “I use the library and tutoring all the time. More space in library. In tutoring they help you with everything. Gold stars all around!”
  • “Continue your creative impulses.”
  • “Thanks for expanding the collection of reading materials for English language learners! It’s been nice to see some of my students accessing those resources.”
  • “The library staff is an excellent resource.”
  • “The librarians do a wonderful job of helping me and my students.”
  • “I love the video databases! I don’t use video often, but I really appreciate having both databases available. I’m gradually finding new materials and trying to incorporate them into my classes.”
  • “I know you’re looking for faculty input, but I wanted to submit this survey to offer support for your services. I regularly use your online databases and ILL and very much appreciate your help!!”
  • “I love the library and have always found the staff to be very responsive to my needs. Thanks!”
