Every year the Library conducts surveys of different elements of the student or academic body. The data and opinions obtained are an invaluable insight into our users and the way they use the Library. The data helps us to plan change for the future. Also, we are able to identify those areas where we can help users exploit resources and services more effectively.
Please find copies of our survey digests below, and if you have any queries please get in touch with Evelyn Bohan.
