Last chance to complete the Library Survey and win an iPad Air

17 05 2016



The big Library Survey finishes soon. Thank you to everyone who has completed it so far.If you haven’t done it yet you still have until the end of the day on Wednesday 18th May to give us your views and be in with a chance to win an iPad Air!

We’ve had some really useful feedback so far, such as:

“The library overall is very good with the staff being helpful and there when you need them. However, the do need to crack down on people who are using their phone for phone calls as it disrupts other learners who are using the library for its sole purpose such as myself.”

So if you have anything you need to say about the library space, our resources or website – good or bad! – please complete the survey and let us know your thoughts.

Library survey – update

9 05 2016

“I have found the staff to be extremely helpful and made me confident with tech and other issues I had experienced. The library itself is a really great place to work.”

We’ve been getting some great comments coming back from this year’s BIG library survey so thank you to everyone who’s completed it so far.

The survey runs until Wednesday 18th May so there is still plenty of time to have your say and be in with a chance to win an iPad. We want to know if we’re providing the kind of services you expect from a university library and how you use us (or not!) to help you with your studies.

“Only negative –  that not all library users always respect the quiet/silent zones which can be a distraction.”

If you don’t tell us how we’re doing, how will we know if we’re doing it right or not?
