The ClimateQUAL™ Organizational Climate and Diversity Assessment

The ClimateQUAL online survey is an assessment of library staff perceptions concerning their library’s commitment to the principles of diversity, organizational policies and procedures, and staff attitudes. The questions are designed to understand the impact perceptions have on service quality in a library setting. 116 of 137 UMass Amherst Library staff participated in the survey in March 2008.
