Take the Library Survey!

LibQual 2017 Banner

Click here to take the library survey.

On Monday 13th November we’re launching our Library Survey.  We’re always striving to be the best we can be and to do that we want to know more about what really matters to our customers and where we can make things better.

This survey will ask you about several areas of library provision and for each one it will ask you to score them in three areas:

  • Minimum Service Level – what is the minimum level of service you would expect
  • Desired Service Level – what would you ideally like the level of service to be
  • Perceived Service Level – how do you think the library is performing at the moment

The results will be used to help us plan improvements to our services to better suit customer needs.

The Library Survey is open to students and staff alike and we’d like as many opinions as possible.   It should only take about five minutes to complete and there’s an option to enter a prize draw to win one of three £25 Amazon vouchers.

Help us be the best library we can be!
