Results of the 2016 Student Library Survey

We have concluded the 2016 Annual Student Survey for the Georgetown Law Library.
This year, 245 students responded. Thank you. We appreciate all feedback.

Here’s a quick overview of the representation of student responses:


All students who completed the survey were eligible for a prize drawing.  Congratulations to our four student winners:  Joshua D. Blume (JD ’19), Briana Rose Pigott (JD ’16), Christopher J. Balser (JD’18), and another law student (JD ’17). Each student received a $50 deposit to his or her GoCard account.

Thank you to all 245 students for participating in this year’s survey. We’ve already started reviewing responses, and we’ll use this input to inform decisions about services and resources.  You can view 2016 quantitative charts and a response summary on our website. For starters, here’s a view of the top items students are seeking on the library website:


The second-most frequent reason listed is to search for books. To facilitate searching in our stacks the library has recently installed new shelf guides in both the Williams and Wolff libraries. These guides protrude out from the end of the ranges to enable quick recognition of what is held in a particular shelving area. We hope that these guides will assist you in locating materials within the stacks.

Here’s an overview of the reasons students visit each of our two library locations:


We will publish a summary response at a later date.  Students and others are encouraged to give us feedback at any time.
