And the results were…
Interesting to say the least. The Medical Grid was definitely something the students would appreciate and they had a wealth of suggestions that will help Rachel to shape what she puts in place (though I know time is tight for this project). The two most important things to the students it seemed to me was a provision of duplicate book stock from the current Grid (biomedical stuff) and good long opening hours to cope with their particular needs.
As suspected there was also some related comments on the library and its current resource provisions for medics. Unsurprisingly "more" was the core theme here, and I've passed on the comments to the Science Librarian team so they can hopefully take it forward.
I think the willingness of the medics to engage with the discussions shows a good form that we can hopefully repeat for the library's efforts next terms.
In other news, whilst it might be snowing outside it is a healthy 22.5degsC inside the office today – a great improvement on last week and one that I hope sticks!
