Have you seen the Library survey results?

by Debbie


Thanks to everyone who completed our survey in November last year. Almost 2000 responses were received – about 15% of all Imperial students!

Areas of questioning included:

  • Satisfaction with core library services e.g. study spaces
  • Use and management of electronic resources e.g. adoption of social bookmarking tools
  • Awareness and usage of library support services e.g. liaison librarians
  • Suggestions for service improvement and change

The library team have a lot of information to work through. We will respond to your key concerns as soon as possible – we’re already discussing possibilities for more PCs with ICT.

In the meantime, see what you said about the Library at:
