Come along to the Ask Library Student Experience workshop and help us make Ask Library fabulous!

Receive a $25 VISA gift card for sharing your thoughts on how we can improve Ask Library. This hour-long session will be the most entertaining library discussion you’ve ever been to (and, quite possibly, the only one you’ve ever been to…). We’ll be delving deeper into the ideas that University of Adelaide students identified in the recent Ask Library survey.

  • Should we give away free coffee?
  • Do you like being greeted by staff as you walk past the desk?
  • Are the book returns chutes impossible to find?

Where: Ira Raymond Room (located on Hub Level 3 North, just near Ask Library)
When: 2 – 3 pm on Thursday 11th May 2017.
Book your spot online

This event is open to all current University of Adelaide students and staff.
