Let’s Celebrate!

2019 has seen many aspects of Library & Learning Resource’s (L&LR) work recognised both by the University and externally.

At the start of 2019 L&LR retained the externally validated Customer Service Excellence Award. The Service is now compliant or compliant plus in all but one of the 57 elements.

As Enid Pryce-Jones, (Deputy Director L&LR) commented, “It is testimony to the hard work and dedication of all L&LR staff and the engagement of our partners in BCU – without them there would be no accreditation.”

 

In April it was fabulous to see colleagues from L&LR achieving recognition at BCU’s CFO Awards:

  • the Library Relocation Team won the CFO Portfolio Team Award for Student Transformation – relocating Education from City North’s Kenrick Library to Mary Seacole Library

  • the Curzon Library Customer Services Team won in the Generosity of Spirit Award for their work helping students and staff who use BCU Library

  • the Stock Management Team (Mary Seacole Library) were nominated in the Continuous Improvement Award category, and finally,
  • Colleagues from the L&LR Collections Team were nominated within the Student Transformation Award.

All fantastic achievements. “It really does prove what an excellent service we provide.” (L&LR SMT)

 

And there’s been more…

In the recent BCU Extra Miles Award 2018/2019 the Library Staff Team were shortlisted for the Team of the Year Award alongside a nomination for Librarian James Dean, shortlisted in the Professional Services Staff of the Year category.

Quite a year so far, I think you’ll agree, demonstrating that  “The L&LR work hard to meet customer needs and deliver services.” (L&LR SMT).
