Research Commons Survey ($100 prize draw)

August 07, 2014

The SFU Library's Research Commons provides graduate students with resources and services to support their research activities and partners with other service providers and departments who do the same. The Research Commons is seeking input from you to help them develop new resources and services and to signal the need for new partners within and beyond the University.

They are interested in your feedback on what software, support, and infrastructure (equipment, furniture, space) you use and need to be successful in your research activities.

Please send your feedback via websurvey:
The survey should take about 10–15 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey you can enter a draw for a $100 gift card to the SFU Bookstore.

In order to be considered for the draw, you need to complete the survey by Sunday, August 31, 11:59 pm.

Your responses will help guide the Research Commons in resource, programming and space development that will support SFU graduate students.

More information about current Research Commons' services and resources is available at

Please contact with any questions.
