Library survey 2014 – We have a result!

In the autumn 2014 Library Survey 2014 was carried out at Lund University to examine what our users think of our library service.

Many thanks to all of you who responded! The results and the comments will be very helpful as we plan our next steps to improve the library services.

The Library Survey shows that students and staff at the School of Management and Economics are quite satisfied with the staffs service and response, and we are very pleased about that.

However, the library users are not so pleased with the library environment. There are too few study areas, the noise level is too high, sometimes there are problems with copying and printing, and the library environment needs to get better.

Some improvements have already been made. The number of power outlets at the quiet reading areas has been expanded. We have replaced some of the old furniture. To reduce the noise level around the copier/printer, screens have been set up. We have also removed shelves, to increase the number of quiet reading areas.

The library's information services were also much criticized and a large part has to do with our common search systems. Since the survey was conducted, our library catalogue Lovisa has a new interface. The search system LUBsearch conducted its own user survey in spring 2014, and has since developed the system. In addition, the libraries at Lund University will shortly get a new common website. Also the Library of Economics and Management will review its website, with the hope to make it more user friendly.

In the future it is planned to regularly conduct library surveys of the same kind, to see if we manage to improve our service.

If you have further comments or tips regarding the services at the Library of Economics and Management, you are welcome to e-mail this to a librarian Katrin Nylén.

On the blog of the Library Survey 2014, survey results and additional information will be published shortly.




A new interface for our library catalogue Lovisa

On Friday, March 20, at 12 o'clock, our library catalogue Lovisa will be shut down for maintenance.

During this time you can borrow and return books at our library, but you can't renew or request books. 

Lovisa will be back up again in the afternoon on March 23, with a new look!
