MSU Library Social Media Survey

slide-social-media-surveyAs some of you may recall, we launched a social media survey last year designed for the MSU-Bozeman community. The survey was developed by MSU Librarians to help us better understand social media use and expectations.

Now, we’d like to know how social media is being used currently and how that compares to last year. If you filled it out last year — please fill it out again! If you’ve never completed this survey before, we want to hear from you, too!

Thanks so much for your help!
