Information Services - Plans and Performance

Our aim is to improve the services we provide to all our customers and so we consult, plan our activities, then monitor our performance.


We want to provide you with the best possible service.


We are always very interested in hearing your views:


Our Vision

Information Services (IS) 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.

The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey

Our Customer Feedback  


In 2017 we changed our focus from exit surveys to a paper-based survey at our Library Help Desks.  This was to enable us to test the quality and timeliness of our service.
