Library Survey 2019

We’re looking at ways we can improve our services and we need your help.

We’ve developed a short (5-8 minute) survey to provide us (the University of Canterbury Library) with information about how our users interact with the Library’s staff and resources.

The objectives of the survey is to further understand how we can offer timely, appropriate support and effective information at the point of need and to provide users with the opportunity to communicate openly and honestly with the Library.

Take the survey from 9 September – 6 October and be in to win a $300 STA travel voucher *
