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.

The survey will be available  from 9 September – 6 October.

The competition is open to UC Students and subscription borrowers.

Have your say about the future of education

The Government wants to shift towards an education system with stronger student voice – where all students have their voices valued, listened and responded to and are empowered to be strong advocates for their own and others’ educational journeys.

To help them move towards this, they want to hear from as many tertiary students, staff, providers, organisations, and education agencies as possible.
They want to know what UC staff and students think about student voice, and some of the government’s initial thinking on how to enhance student voice.

They can do this by completing a short survey available here>
The survey closes  4 October 2019.

We will then publish a summary of what we heard on the Ministry of Education’s Kōrero Mātauranga website, so that everyone can see how we have captured and included their voices.

If you have any questions about this work, please contact the team at Tertiary.Strategy@education.govt.nz.
Thank you,
