Proud achievement...

Each year all University libraries across the UK are asked to fill in a quesitonnaire about their services and facilities. The Learning Resource Centre at Queen Margaret University did particularly well in the latest survey, which covered the academic year 2007/2008.

One question asked for the percentage of overall library space devoted to IT provision. QMU scored the highest percentage in Scotland at 40% and we came joint third across the whole of the UK. The average for the 'new' universities in the UK was 19.6%!

Another question asks for the number of open access workstations. QMU was third highest in Scotland at 605 - just behind Edinburgh and Glasgow. The average for the 'new' sector was 414. Our LRC's study spaces were open for 47,493 hours in 07/08 - only Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities' figures were higher!

We also issued more items in 2007/2008 than three much larger Scottish Universities.

We are proud of our Learning Resource Centre - we hope you are too.
