Hi MALiA Members!

It's time again to evaluate MALiA's contract vendors per state procurement regulations.

  • The survey covers 30 vendor evaluations: 17 vendors for Library Materials, 3 vendors for Library Serials, and 10 vendors for Library Supplies.  Several vendors (e.g. EBSCO, Jupiter Associates) are in more than one category.
  • You will rate vendors in five areas according to state requirements:  delivery performance, quality of goods/services, number of complaints, responsiveness to requests to correct deficiencies, and overall evaluation.
  • You will be able to skip vendors that you did not use.
  • You will be able to exit the survey and re-enter if you wish to do the survey over multiple sessions.
  • Survey results will remain anonymous.  Library name, required for entry in the survey prize drawing, will be excluded from survey data.  Your email address will also be excluded if you choose to provide it at the end of the survey.
  • MALiA will share survey results with member libraries as well as the Library of Virginia procurement officer.
