RLUK has published a major report by Mary Auckland on the changing needs of researchers and the effect on the subject/liaison role within libraries. As research activities evolve, research support must evolve with them. RLUK has been keen to determine what the new requirements of researchers are, and how best these needs can be met by the library. We want to place the needs of researchers in the context of the libraries current offering, and look at how we must change to fulfil the new demands placed upon us.
Our Position The issue of journal prices has been a matter of concern for university libraries for the past couple of decades. However, the combination of falls in the value of sterling, the international financial collapse and uncertainty in the funding of the UK Higher Education sector has hit British libraries hard.
Martin Philip (Subject Librarian for Accountancy, Law and Informatics) reflects on a focus group held with a group of our ‘non users’ from the School of Computing and Engineering. I recently conducted a focus group with five Computing students, a department that has been identified as low users of the library. The focus group was conducted using the ‘flipchart paper and post-it notes’ format, as designed by Ellen. There were five parts to the session, beginning with an activity that asked students to explain where they got information that was used in their last assignment.
