Thanks to the UNB and STU communities for responding to our LibQUAL 2013 survey!
The LibQUAL survey is part of a worldwide effort led by the Association of Research Libraries to collect patron opinions on library services, facilities, and resources.
UNB Libraries has been a participant since 2004, and LibQUAL 2013 has been our most successful survey yet: over 1500 students, faculty, and staff shared their thoughts with us. Our analysis of survey results will be shared with the university community later this year.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the LibQUAL 2013 optional prize draw:
- Grand Prize (Nexus 10 Tablet):
Charmaine Norris (UNBSJ)
- Second Prize (iPad Mini):
Amanda-Paige O’Blenes (STU)
- Third Prize (Kobo Arc):
Laura Romero-Zeron (UNBF)
Congratulations to our prize winners, and thanks to all participants for helping us improve library services!

Welcome, delegates, to WILU 2013!
The Workshop for Instruction in Library Use (WILU), is an annual Canadian conference where delegates meet to discuss timely topics related to information literacy. UNB Libraries are honoured to host the 42nd WILU Conference as it returns to Canada’s East Coast, and to UNB after 11 years!
Our theme, Synchronicity: The Time is Now, reflects the increasing need for Instruction Librarians to balance a myriad of seemingly competing demands. What does it mean to provide timely information literacy programs in a world of synched devices, decentralized instruction, and information overload, all while serving institutions in flux? Our sessions will help us grapple with the contemporary challenges of merging tradition with innovation, balancing theory with pedagogical practice, providing instruction for interdisciplinary programs, and engaging with information ethics, open access resources for instruction, and literacies that go beyond information literacy.
Please note that the Harriet Irving Library will close at 5pm on Wednesday, May 8th for a WILU reception.
Check out our book sale located in the HIL Learning Commons. Additional books for sale are located in the basement of the Harriet Irving Library (continue past Room 014).
The prices are excellent! Please pay at the Commons Service Desk. All proceeds go towards library acquisitions.
