Often researchers ask open-ended questions in surveys and, as a result, can receive valuable feedback from constituents about the library program. The challenge can be identifying and organizing the themes and threads if the comment set is large. If those comments are imported into Wordle, a quick analysis of the major themes and threads appears in an infographic that can be used for strategic planning and advocacy.
