Help improve the Library by taking our survey!

Library Satisfaction Survey – 2019

April 3 – 16

The 2019 Library Customer Satisfaction Survey begins on April 3 and will continue through April 16. The survey, which takes less than ten minutes to complete, is the primary instrument we use to hear from our users and improve our services. By taking the survey, you can tell us what you like and what you would like to see changed at the Library.

There are two different surveys, please choose a survey below according to your current status:

$$ You could win a $50 Amazon Gift Card* $$

After completing your survey, you will have a chance to enter in the drawing for one of three Amazon gift cards. The drawing will take place after the survey has closed by April 20, and the winner will be notified by email and announced via social media.

*Please note that prizes won by Regent University employees are subject to state and federal taxes.

Explore Creativity with First Fridays

This semester, on the first Friday of each month, the Library will host an informal series that will celebrate creativity and innovation. This will be an exciting way for students and faculty to meet innovators who are making a positive impact in our world.

The series will kick off this Friday with The Shoe That Grows™ founder and Regent alumnus Kenton Lee. Doris Gomez, Dean of the School of Business and Leadership, will introduce Kenton as he joins us online to tell how a walk with some kids in Kenya led to a simple but ingenious idea. The Shoe That Grows™ is a Patent for Humanity Award Winner this year.

The event will be held at the Library globe on the first floor on September 7 at 12:30.

Watch the World Cup at the Library

Watch the entire game or just a few minutes at the Library.

The quadrennial FIFA World Cup is a global event like no other. Over a billion people around the world watched the 2014 final match in Rio de Janeiro, but perhaps even this pales when compared to the artificial earthquake set off last Sunday by jubilant fans in Mexico City following their team’s stunning 1-0 upset over defending champion Germany.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off last Thursday and will continue through the July 15 final in Moscow. Sadly, the United State did not qualify this year, but you have a choice of 32 other teams to cheer for.

The official 2018 World Cup ball has a pixelated pattern in homage to the classic Telstar design of 1970.

The Library invites soccer fans (as well as the merely curious) to watch the World Cup at the Library. We will be showing all matches televised on Fox when the Library is open for the duration of the tournament. Remember, the Library is closed on Sundays during the summer, so you’ll have to find another location for those matches, which includes the final!

Congratulations, Class of 2018!

“The central task of education is to implant a will and a facility for learning; it should produce not learned but learning people. The truly human society is a learning society, where grandparents, parents, and children are students together.” -Eric Hoffer

The Library faculty and staff offer our sincere congratulations to Regent’s Class of 2018.
