UCL Special Collections taking part in ARA Survey of Visitors to UK Archives from Monday 15th October

UCL Special Collections is taking part in the ARA Survey of Visitors to UK Archives from Monday 15th October for one month. During this period, you will be invited to take part by filling out a short, anonymous survey about your visit.  If you would prefer not to take part, you are under no obligation to do so. Even if you have taken part in the survey at another archive, we still want to hear your views about us. We appreciate you taking the time to fill out the survey as this helps us to monitor and improve the service we provide to our users.
