Here's a website that's a useful place to start:

The only book I have information on at the moment is extremely academic:

Communication Research Measures: A Sourcebook. (Rubin, Palmgreen, &
Sypher), Guilford Press.

I'd also suggest taking a look at usability resources such as the
Usability Professionals Association (, Information by
Design (, Digital Web Magazine
( Stephen Krug's "Don't Make Me Think" and
Seth Godin's "Big Red Fez: How to make any website better." These don't
have information on specific survey resources, but would provide useful
areas to consider when you build your surveys around usabiility and
customer satisfaction.

Good luck

trying to develop some customer service survey questions as well as some
questions about how our site navigates. Any suggestions would be
