Information about our Feedback board Pilot - May 2022

 

  • We gathered 5 participants for a usability test of our new feedback board . Usability testing is qualitative research on such topics as : the board's aesthetics; how you express your comments on the board; whether the different categories of the board work well, and how the librarians respond to your comments. 
  • The feedback board was placed in the library corridor and anyone could anonymously place a comment in any of its four categories 

 

 

Results of Feedback Pilot
   You like our stationery and have given us some great ideas on how to expand further.
 Our desks need modernization. The library was built in the 1970s. We have recently changed the chairs and added some ergonomic equipment to the Reading Room and sofas in the library corridor downstairs. A new library will be built in the next few years that will provide a flexible working environment. 
  The library temperature. The air conditioning/temperature regulation system with the combination of the wall of windows often makes the room too hot or too cold.
What we got done!
 
We personally answered every single comment and these are our action points: 

1. We brought engineers to check the air conditioning/temperature control units. They are now set to 22 degrees celsius. 

2. We looked into noise complaints and added appropriate signs in the library.

3. We bought almost all the new stationery you asked for, and distributed it in the reading room and library corridor. Some items can also be borrowed from the library office.

4. We bought jigsaws and reinstated Squash O' Clock.
