Thank you for taking the time to complete a Library feedback card.

I do appreciate that the Main Library is very busy at peak times and that is why the University is planning to provide more seating on Level 1 – as part of a redevelopment project currently earmarked for 2019. This is dependent on moving stock currently stored in Level 1 of the Main Library out to a new store planned at the Eden Campus in Guardbridge. Unfortunately in the short term we have no scope to add additional study spaces onto the existing provision on Levels 2, 3 & 4. That said, this semester we have extended opening hours at St Mary’s College Library from 5pm to 7.45pm every weekday to make more study spaces available.

I really appreciate your comments about the member of staff who helped you find your class – I will make sure he receives your feedback.

Please do not hesitate to get back in touch if I can be of further assistance.

kind regards
