You Said We Did 19/20: Resources

Transforming the Student Experience

Library Resources

You said

  • More resources including; up to date resources, more books and access to more journals.

We did

  • £10,000 'More Books' fund to run in 2020. Thousands of books will be added into Summon for you to pick from. Choose which ones to purchase with a simple click.
  • Increased percentage spend per school, on flexible 'demand driven' purchasing for eBooks. This allows you to make decisions on what eBooks we purchase.
  • Increased budget for new courses, meaning there is more to spend on existing courses too. This has increased our spend for Ipswich students to £100.27 per head. 
  • Replacing and reviewing out of date stock
  • Regular reservation monitoring to purchase more copies of high demand items
  • Implemented notifications that let you know if a book you have on loan has been reserved. This should give you more time to return your items to the library in your free time.
