Library Survey 2009

Library Survey 2009
We’re still listening, and would like to hear more: Please complete the survey at
http://survey.libqual.org/index.cfm?ID=396467

So far people are using the survey to raise a lot of issues and suggestions for the Medical Library and its services:
  • working space – the temperature, the noise, the light
  • Library staff – the extent to which you find us friendly, helpful, professional
  • refurbishment and building works – the noise levels, and the resulting changes to the library
  • group study areas – to allow for quiet conversation & discussions
  • opening hours
  • noise levels in the library
  • accessibility of electronic resources when not in the library – differences between NHS access and University/Library access
  • balance between electronic journals and paper journals
  • document delivery service and charges
  • range and age of book stock
  • quality of computer and photocopy facilities
  • availability of training and support for literature searching
The breakdown of respondents so far is:
  • Student: 41%
  • Medical: 18%
  • Nursing and midwifery: 13%
  • Allied Health: 10%
  • Scientific and technical staff: 8%
  • Non-clinical staff: 5%
  • Other: 3%
  • Management: 1%
  • Dental: 0%
