LIBRARY SURVEY

The Library Survey, which takes place once every two years, will be running throughout March this year.  This is an opportunity for you rate the service on key areas such as resources, environment and the courteousness of library staff.  This year, there are two separate prize draws to win an iPad – one for students and one for staff.
