I have always wanted a "rating system" on a library by
libray basis. Ideally, this would be a web page that
could be invoked for any library

library: select library

Rate 1 (unacceptable) ... 5(great) the following:

robustness(flakey),..,(non percieved)
percieved performance(slow),...(unperceptible)
documentation (useless).(tax code)..(a pleasure to read and use)
ease of use(tax code)...(no-brainer)
response to questions/support(awol)...(right next to me)
overall quality


and a summary page for each library

total number of responses
results for above questions
overall rating.

links to comments/pages/ar ratings.
