That was the question we put to Gracie Fuller, one of our students chosen not quite at random because she stood still for too long and looked amenable. This is what Gracie told us:
“The university library offers a multitude of services from taking out books to workshops specifically engineered to aid your studies. The facilities cater for all needs. There are computers and printers available, even areas that offer a space to study in quiet, all of which are user friendly and easy to use. The system even automatically renews your book loans for you. The facilities include a comfortable café area to take a well-earned break when studying, the food and drinks are reasonably priced, and there’s a comfortable seating area away from the hustle and bustle of the main library.
The library has a brilliant collections management team, working behind the scenes to ensure resources are readily available and easy to find. There’s a wide range of resources too, with a rare books collection, an archive full of materials and a whole host of online resources. Also on the rare occasion you can’t find what you’re looking for, the library staff can put through interlibrary loans, or order new books to make sure you always have the resources that you need.”
