Event description

Description

This event will be an exchange of experience and will include presentations and opportunities for networking and sharing.

It will cover the impact libraries make on the student experience, with the following speakers lined up:

University of Chester will provide an overview of 3 different initiatives:

  • Impact on academic success, discussing the correlation between attendance at library sessions and attainment within the Faculty of Science and Engineering
  • Feedback aiding the student experience – use of feedback from students at a library forum to inform design of a new faculty library
  • Wellbeing – how the library team has engaged with well-being initiatives within the library

University of Central Lancashire will look at how feedback can aid the student experience:

  • discussing how collecting student views via post-it note-feedback about library services, evolved into a wider group and subsequently the use of this initiative has been extended across all University buildings.

Manchester University will look at the impact on academic success:

  • discussing embedding impact measurement in library services, including a case study.

Liverpool John Moores University will also look at impact on academic success:

  • focusing on work around the National Student Survey, highlighting two subject areas where measures instigated have subsequently seen scores increase significantly.

Hugh Baird College (a partner college) will look at wellbeing:

  • focusing on family friendly areas in the HE library for students with children. It will also highlight how the College engages with young people to introduce them to an academic library environment.
