Thank you to everyone who added their comments to the Festive Feedback Tree that was located in the library during December 2021. We enjoyed reading your comments about the service, and your wishes and hopes for the new year.

“More fiction and non-science related books . . . . just because we are a healthcare uni, doesn’t mean books can’t help us grow”
Due to space limitations, it is not possible to dramatically increase the size of the fiction collection. However, we have a collection of general fiction, LGBTQ+, and Black History titles, and are happy to receive specific book suggestions to add to our ‘reading for pleasure’ section.
“No wobbly tables”
We are sorry to hear about the wobbly tables. We will be undertaking checks to ensure all the tables are stable.
“More group study room please!”
We know the group discussion rooms are popular, and are currently exploring options for increasing the number of these.
“Can we have study break passes for longer than 30mins”
Study space is at a premium at certain times of the year. Reserving spaces for longer than 30mins means others are potentially denied a space. 30mins is enough time to have a comfort break and grab something to eat.
“We love our Library – please bring back the blankets”
“Please bring back the blankets”
During the COVID pandemic, the sharing of blankets was seen as a transmission risk, and removing them was the responsible thing to do. We keep this in constant review, and we hope to bring them back in due course.
