We want to make sure that Library Guides help you to find and manage the information that you need for your studies. So whatever you think about them we want to see how you use them. We’re looking for volunteers to come to the library and perform a few short tasks to help us judge how easy it is to find information on the library guides. We expect this to take an hour at most and we will give a power bank to each volunteer. (Power banks let you charge your mobile phone or other portable devices on the move. Very useful on long journeys!)
To volunteer email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time that is convenient for you.
If you have some feedback about Library Guides but you aren’t able to come in to the library, take this short survey to let us know what you think.
