Surveys

In working in my small library, I need to utilize some type of survey in order to receive input from my patrons.  I have made paper surveys for teacher meetings and students who frequent the library.  Yet with the amount of technology we have, why not have something that can be put online?  My school is trying to put everything in a nice little nutshell so students can access their assignments, etc. from the teacher’s webpage via the school portal.  The library is one area that uses an outside source for its catalog.  If I am to create a survey, then I am going to have a put a link to our OPAC.  One tool that I have found is WASSAIL 3.1. It apparently can create surveys and store the data for me.  I have yet to download it as it will have to be on my home computer.  I just thought this would be a great tool to have a resource for teachers, too.
