I created a simple six question survey about the library's blog and wiki and included the link in an e-mail to the libstaff listserv. I had twelve people complete the survey and it was evenly divided between staff and librarians. The analysis of the results was very helpful. The majority of respondents read the blog and wiki, but very few people post to either. Another interesting result was the majority of people responding thing the wiki should be used to post procedure manuals. If I had surveys to administer to large groups of people I would upgrade my account and use Survey Monkey again. Once I decided on the subject of my survey and created the questions it was easy to create the survey. I also liked the fact you could preview the survey and edit the questions before you created the link for it. This was a fun and informative assignment.
