To deliver the best possible facilities, services and resources Library and Learning Services seeks to understand the needs of all our students so that we can continue to improve. One of the ways we do this is by listening to your feedback. You may remember way back in October we asked for your feedback about the stock that we sell in the stationery vending machine. Your responses were really useful and the results are now in! We’ve got some great new products which we hope you will love….
