Our annual joint Library/IT survey will be coming around again next month and, in preparation for that, we wanted to let you know what we have done in response to your comments from last year's survey. Here's the second instalment:
“The library doesn’t have the material I need.”
“More copies of essential books please”
“A wider range and more copies of key texts”
22% of respondents cited this as a barrier to using the Library, and 29% featured this in their answer to the question “what one thing does the Library do now that we could do better?”
We obtained an extra £75,000 for the Library Collection Development budget this year, which is being spent on new books, ebooks, journals, and other types of materials.
