Love your Library.... what you think matters

So, you may have seen one of these cheeky fellows floating around the library...
You may even have been one of those who posted a postcard into this post-box...
If you were, then I would like to say thank-you for taking the time to fill out the survey! Over the summer, the University made some fantastic changes to the second and fifth floors... but we don’t want it to stop there!

RUSU ran the library survey to find out what you want out of the library. Naturally, views and opinions differ across year and faculty, but here is what we found the overall student body wants:

  • Continued refurbishments to the third and fourth floors
  • An increase in the library temperature (believe it or not, one of the biggest student gripes was that you were too cold)
  • Improved toilet facilities
  • Improved catering facilities, with more space to eat in particular more group study spaces
  • Improved IT services, including more computers
  • More extensive and up-to-date collections
  • Of course, many other issues have been raised as a result of the survey, which we will also continue to work on – such as more safety bus provisions

By filling in our postcard, you have directed your Union.

ou have given us a wealth of data we can now use as evidence to lobby the University on all the above matters.................we'll keep you posted on our progress.J
