The Graduate and Professional Student survey is the second phase of a three-part study designed to assess patron satisfaction with library-wide services and resources at the University of Iowa Libraries. This project began as a pilot study in 1996. The purpose of this survey is to obtain objective, quantifiable information from graduate and professional students at the University of Iowa about library services and resources.

The objectives of the Graduate and Professional Student Study were: to learn and understand how graduate and professional students access library resources and servIces; to learn what library services, resources, collections and facilities graduate and professional students use for study, teaching and research; to identify graduate and professional students' perception of library resources and services; to learn how satisfied graduate and professional students are with library resources and services; and to identify graduate and professional students unmet needs and areas for improvement.
