Main Library Service Desk

Thank you to everyone who filled in the short paper questionnaire survey at the Library Service Desks in the Main Library, St Marys and JF Allen. We received 159 completed forms!

Here is a breakdown of the results:

  • 99.4% felt they received a friendly welcome.
  • 97.5% found the desk opening hours convenient.
  • 100% were happy with the communication between desk staff and themselves.
  • 100% found staff to be knowledgeable.

Many found time to give us comments and we are very proud to say the vast majority were very positive indeed!

Here are some examples of the comments (we’ve removed staff names to save blushes!):

“Always fab & brilliant service”

“You do such a nice job. You actually benefit my work in real ways!”

“Amazing! Found 2 books I needed that I could not find within minutes.”

“1st class”
