Feedback for Semester 2

We heard your feedback that the Group study spaces bookings system needed better location details.  So now we have now added more maps, room numbers and which level the rooms can be found. See all here Book a study space.

You asked if Library hours could be extended at Auchmuty on the weekends,

“Auchmuty should have extended night time hours on weekends so we don’t have to drive to the City!”

So the good news is that the main Library will be open during November until 8pm on Friday, Saturday and Sundays.

We have received some great feedback on the new Ourimbah Library MakerSpace.

“I would LOVE a quick tour and/or run through of the space! It’d be fantastic to have some of my Design In Society students along to see the space.”

“…i am in love these classes, they are so much fun and exciting.”

“On the facility itself, it is amazing for those breaks in between study.”

“Overall I love this new space and have already become a familiar face with Sally.”

Thank you for your praise for our staff who go above and beyond in helping students access books via our resource sharing services.

You had concerns over access to the daily newspapers at Callaghan – be assured we are working on a solution to keep the service available.

We understand we need to review our quiet study areas at all locations –  we are continually working to improve our physical spaces with demands for both group and quiet study zones.

Feedback: “the stationery supplies are a lifesaver”

It’s great to hear all your comments from the SSAF funded Spring Sippers and Stationery Station Library promotions. A small selection are highlighted below. Remember you can comment or make suggestions anytime on the Ask the LibraryHelp and information page

I really appreciate the spring sippers program. It keeps my morales up during exam time. Thank you! I hope to see this program run again next year with more items and flavours.
I LOVE THE FREE STATIONERY! Great friendly staff always happy to help. Exam period goodies are the greatest endorphins release in a miserable sleep-deprived time of our lives – SO THANK YOU!!! (heart)
I really like studying in Huxley – the environment was quiet & focused so I could get a lot done. I would have loved though if the Library stayed opened longed than 10pm.

Love the librarians. They’re super helpful. Very good computers and lighting and air conditioning. Thanks.

The City library collection is limited but the online is excellent.
I always find the staff at Ourimbah to be accommodating and happy to help at any time of the day. I always get helped beyond my expectations and appreciate their patience with me!
For 24 hours area. You should put quiet area and discussion area separate. Sometimes people want quiet to study, but besides them who chatting each other or too loud discuss. It is disturb someone’s study.

Feedback: AIC 24 hours returned

Much concern was raised over the AIC hours being shortened earlier this semester. So we responded to your comments and the AIC hours have now been restored back to 24 hour access.

“Bring back the AIC to being 24 hours!!!”

“AIC needs to be open for 24 hours again. There isn’t enough computers or space available in the Learning Lounge”

“AIC needs to be open 24/7 otherwise there is not enough computers!”

Feedback: Striving to do better

We always appreciate your comments regarding our services, equipment or facilities, especially when they require attention.

Recent feedback requested:
More available standing desks with computers.
There is currently only one available standing desk with an accompanied computer in Auchmuty library.

Our response:
The Library management is investigating purchasing additional sit stand desks in 2018. The sit stand desk in the lab is specifically for use during classes and general access when lab is available. Lab  L321 is busy over the next few weeks with Library training but bookings should decrease. Meanwhile you can use the sit/stand desks located in the Flower’s room on level 4 of the Auchmuty Library.

We seek to make your experience in the Library exceptional.  If you have any issue with a service such as printing you should always come to a Service Zone and speak to staff.  For issues regarding myPrintCopy or the cashless autoloaders we will bring your concerns to the attention of the appropriate UON department.
