Your Feedback: Searching the Collections and Your Account

The annual Senate House Library All Members Survey will run later this year.

The new library management system has made it easier to search our collections and use your account.

To demonstrate the value and impact your feedback has on the development of the library and its services, we are providing you with highlights from the results of the 2016 survey and the changes we are making as a result.

In response to your feedback we have done a large amount of work behind the scenes, such as the project to go live with a new library management system.

The first phase of this project was to implement the main record management system, which is now in place. Phase two will be the development and introduction of new online discovery services for the SHL collections, and is planned for 2017. 

Further work will also take place, including improvements to mobile and tablet access to the library catalogue and your library account. Further information on these developments will follow in due course.
