Between 1st October and Christmas Library Services will be running a pilot scheme allowing the consumption of food and drink in library spaces.
The success of the scheme will be monitored throughout the autumn term and will only become policy if all students work together with Library Services to make it a success.
We have spent this summer adding some great new resources to our collections, we’ve made a number of changes and improvements to our facilities, by moving collections we have created extra study spaces at Northampton Square and Cass, we have new lighting and furniture throughout Gray’s Inn Place. We’ve also been part of a University wide project to improve the printing and photocopying facilities, and deliver a more environmentally friendly service.
Our Subject Guides have been fully updated and Academic Library Services have been busy creating a number of new workshops which will run throughout the year. We hope these will help you access our high quality collections and offer you effective support for your study and research.
Many of the improvements we have made over the past year have been as a direct result of student feedback, including our annual Library Loves … Feedback, the University wide Your Voice Our Action campaign, and of course the results of the National Student Survey. I am delighted to say that Library Services improved its score from last year by 3% to 89%. I am very proud of my staff and all they achieve but we want to do even better this year, so please remember to share any comments you have with us. You can do this through speaking to us in person, contacting us via email or using the new feedback pages on our website. We look forward to working with you and wish you all the best for your studies in the year ahead.
Director of Library Services
