It’s Time for the Fall Door Survey!

During the week of October 23, Lane Medical Library will be conducting our biannual door survey to collect data on who uses  the library. When you enter the library, you will be asked to stop at the Information Desk, show your Stanford ID card or badge, and answer 3 quick questions: 

  • What is your affiliation? (e.g. School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care, etc)
  • What is your status? (e.g. post-doc, PA student, visiting scholar/professor, etc.)
  • What is your reason for visiting the library? (e.g. studying, resting, using the printer, etc.)

We gather this data for the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accreditation and space planning purposes. Thank you for your time and assistance in gathering this important information!
