Andruss Library has received final statistical analysis of the LibQual survey, which the library ran in the fall of 2006. In a comparison against two peer libraries as defined by PASSHE, Andruss Library scored above these peers on its ability to make information available to patrons and on the quality of the library building. Andruss Library scored below these peers on the effect of library service. The two peers were Humbolt State University in California and Radford University in Virginia.

Andruss Library scored very close to the PASSHE library average in all three areas, and scored above the average for all libraries who took the survey in all three areas. The results for Andruss Library itself, all PASSHE libraries, and the comparison of the library to its peers is available below.

The LibQual survey, an online survey is a nationally-recognized standard for evaluating library service quality, and has been used by over 500 libraries worldwide. Over 1400 Bloomsburg University students, faculty, and staff took the survey last fall.
