The Pollak Library needs your help!  We are testing out a new product and want to know what you think.  Take a minute to fill out our survey, and you could win a gift card to In-N-Out or Starbucks.

The Basic Article Search on the Library’s home page is one of the most frequently used research tools. It provides quick and easy access to library content.  We are always looking for ways to improve it and we are looking for your input.  All you need to do is enter a search query and look at two sets of results.  Pick which group you like better and that’s it!

So try the Basic Article Search the next time you need to do library research and while you’re there, take a second to fill out our brief survey.  You can find the link to the survey on the search results page the the right of the search box.

    I tried the basic search survey and I am not finding how or where to enter my information to be able to win a chance at a Starbucks or In-N-Out gift card.

    Similar to the previous poster, when I try the survey link it just takes me to the search box. I only see results for the search and not the side by side comparison.
