The importance of surveys for librarians

Surveys are crucial for librarians as they provide a direct, qualitative way to understand a library’s user base. Instead of guessing what library patrons need, want or expect from experience with the library, librarians can ask their user population about:

The value of libraries in general Obstacles for library users‍

The most desired services from libraries How libraries are currently used by the population it serves

Librarians can then use the survey results to improve the library’s offerings and/or answer questions from other stakeholders. That could be anything from budget requests to responding to challenges by political or other powerful figures who want to shut a library down. Indeed, librarians have a long history of using surveys and similar methods to prove library’s value to stakeholders.It’s a common scenario librarians are pushing stakeholders to reconsider or increase budgets for their library. But some librarians struggle to collect data to support their pitch.

According to Research & Marketing Strategies, Inc, librarians must provide data to back up their request. Surveys are one type of data that can be useful, and Research & Marketing Strategies, Inc lists several reasons why librarians should use surveys:

To collect demographic data about library users

To understand library users’ needs new services

To evaluate and improve on current services

-Some groups of people and areas with more marginalized populations, such as rural areas, benefit more from libraries according to Andrew F. Herrmann, president of the American Society of Civil Engineers. An example was in a New York Times article about a girl duhtion centers. Data can help librarians make the libraries more relevant to those users and help groups with data to support calls for more library access in communities.
