Update: Survey closed Sunday, March 20. Updates will be posted to the Georgetown Law Library website, including news on a winner of the Apple iPod Touch.
The Law Library is currently conducting a survey of all Georgetown law students. Please take about 10 minutes to give us your feedback about our reference services and research collections. We're also looking for your thoughts about our facilities and a few other library-related items. We promise to read every comment submitted, and we'll do what we can to act on and respond to your feedback.
Take the 2011 Law Library Survey [Georgetown login required]
One lucky student completing the survey will win an Apple iPod Touch (32 GB). We will keep the survey open through Sunday, March 20, and plan to announce the student winner during March after the survey closes.
It should only take a few minutes to complete the voluntary survey. Based on feedback in prior years, we created an online group study reservation system, relocated the reference desk in the Wolff Library and purchased new chairs for the Williams Reading Room and Williams library fifth floor. In addition, we have added library book scanners, and we enhanced frequently-used library collections, including our collection of DVD and study aids.
Read a summary of survey results from the last four years, together with our response each year: Annual Law Library Student Survey
Here's a profile of the 607 students who replied last year. We hope to you'll take the time to help us get at least this many responses this time around.

For the past four years, the Georgetown Law Library has conducted a survey of students each Spring. Shortly after the survey closes, we publish charts showing some of the quantitative results, which we announce on our blog. Student input from the survey helps us make decisions on adapting library services, materials and resources to best meet student needs. In addition to publishing charts, each year we provide narrative feedback, meant to show how the library is evolving based on student input.
The Spring 2010 Law Library Survey Response is now online, where you can read about our updated computer labs, planned enhancements to book scanning options, changes to our website navigation menus, and updates on other services.
You can view all survey materials on the Annual Law Library Survey page.
We appreciate student input. Throughout the year, we hope to continue this dialog through our Law Library Feedback Blog, a place where we post answers to your student questions. You can send comments and suggestions through our suggestion page. The library will use the Feedback Blog to respond.
