Service Delivery Annual Survey 2019

On an annual basis we will undertake a comprehensive survey of all our users.  Questions will be asked about the library service overall and specifically about library staff, library resources, library facilities, library system, library communication and engagement.

We commissioned an independent research company Alterline to conduct their Library Life Pulse survey and invited 20,247 students and members of staff to complete this during the month of November 2019.  Thank you, we received 2165 responses.

The opinions of our customers really matter to us, as the results of this and other feedback received feed in to future policy and planning for the Library and Learning Centre.
