Comments & suggestions

We welcome your feedback and are continually aiming to evolve the library services to best suit you.  

Get in touch with any comments, complaints, suggestions. We also have a comments book on the coffee table in the library where you can write anonymously.

 

Previous comments include:

  • "It is a great help that you are now one of the places where books from the Bod stacks can be accessed."
  • "Staff are always on-hand to help and 'go the extra mile' to help with any query."
  • "Although the library is small, I think that this is one of the best libraries in Oxford because of its service and its staff members."
  • "As all of us student-interns are frequently reminded, we'll live or die this year based on our organisation skills. Lucky for me then, my literature search and reference management skills have been brought well and truly out of the dark ages, with some invaluable sessions run by the librarians."
  • "The literature sessions have been incredibly useful and should be provided to all research students (MScs) if they aren't already."
  • "Today, I went to a wonderful workshop that you all hosted, and I feel much more confident about my research project due to your guidance."
  • "Thanks for the helpful "Managing your References" session on Wednesday - Mendeley is SO helpful! I had been using it just a bit at the beginning of term, but I had no idea - until the session - how much more there was in the program."
