Our Operational Plan
Information Services Plan 2016-17 outlines the key aims and objectives during the period 2016-17.
Information Services aims to assist all forms of learning by providing access to information. Our service is primarily for students, staff and researchers of the university. However, we also provide resources to other Higher Education institutions and partnership bodies. Members of the public can also benefit from our extensive library collections.

In response to the question ‘I have been able to access general IT resources when I needed to’ the results were 94%, the same as in 2015.
Access to IT resources was ranked 9th out of all UK Higher Education Institutions, and Library resources were ranked 30th, both results in the top quartile for all UK institutions.
