Two of our Library Associates

Here are some of the issues identified by previous Library Associates, and the actions we’ve to address them:

Struggling to navigate the Library: in 2019-20 we ran a peer support scheme, where the Associates helped new students find material in the Library. They helped 332 students in weeks 3 and 4 of term 1

Students would like more Study Happy activities to happen outside of 9-5: we now have Creative Chill out and Games Nights later in the day so more students can access them

Students would like more individual study spaces and a leisure section for relaxation: the Associates took part in discussions about the Future Library, and their feedback is reflected in plans to refurbish the Library soon

Each year we have identified and chased problem modules and got hold of missing reading lists. This has also emphasised to members of academic staff the importance of sending their lists to the Library

English students struggling to access primary texts: We worked with the English department and SSLC to improve students’ access to primary texts. We changed all primary texts on reading lists to 3 day loans, to ensure the maximum number of students can access a Library copy

Students would like it to be easier to pass books on to each other: We worked with LitSoc to set up and promote a Pass the Book Facebook page, to make it much easier for English students to exchange copies of texts

Students would like it to be easier to request books for the Library to buy: We now have a “more books” scheme, running at key points in the academic year, to make it quicker and easier for students to request the books they need for the Library

Students would like more book stock focused on key areas: We have identified areas of the collection for further development, and spent the allocated money for the Library Associate scheme on these texts

English students would like a regular update from the Library, with news, advice and tips: We now have a termly newsletter, to keep English students posted on new developments in the Library
