We constantly measure our levels of service to make sure we are offering you the best we can.

We are pleased to say that last term we improved our performance in two areas:

  1. We improved our standard ‘Library Search service will be available 24/7 100% of the time’ from 88% to 100%
  2. We improved our standard ‘90% of all returned materials will be re-shelved within 24 hours’ from 86% to 96%

Here’s the full picture (best viewed in Chrome):

    

Targets we met:

1. 90% of all returned materials will be re-shelved within 24 hours.

2. 80% of face to face enquiries will be resolved at the first point of contact.

3. 99% of face to face enquiries were resolved at the first point of contact.

4. We will respond to Twitter feedback within 3 hours of receipt during fully staffed opening hours. This is a new standard this term.

5. 95% of students attending Library Services skills sessions will agree or strongly agree that they have found the session useful.
