LibQUAL+® is a suite of services that libraries use to solicit, track, understand, and act upon users’ opinions of service quality. These services are offered to the library community by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). The program’s centerpiece is a rigorously tested web-based survey paired with training that helps libraries assess and improve library services, change organizational culture, and market the library. LibQUAL+ is on the web at http://www.libqual.org/.

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is a nonprofit organization of 125 research libraries in the US and Canada.
