Library Matters Live Success!

was the title of our Library Introduction Sessions for all new Aston students. This year Aston welcomed 3,692 new University students, and staff in the Library met 2,313 of you during Welcome Weeks one, two and the first week of term!

Many of you were introduced in person to your Information Specialist and the majority of you were able to see at first hand Library Catalogue, self service machine and printing demonstrations. At the end of each Library Matters Live session those present were asked to fill out an evaluation form with entry to win £100 Bullring shopping centre voucher; a winner has now been chosen and notified.

From analysis of the forms filled in 72% were happy with the content of these sessions. We had hundreds of positive comments about the practical demonstrations that we gave for the first time this year and many comments regarding wanting to know more about Library facilities and resources.

Now that we are settling into Term 1 we hope that this introduction has given you a good starting point in the use you can make of the entire Library. Don’t forget to look out for future Library sessions that appear on your timetable and remember we are here to help you make the best use of all the resources available so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you need any further help.
