Invitation to take part in Royal Free London Library Services Training Needs Assessment

Royal Free London Library Services (RFLLS - including the Royal Free Hospital Medical Library and Barnet Hospital Library) is conducting a short survey of our users to find out what kind of training and support you would like us to provide. We would like to invite you to complete this survey.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Your responses will be used to help us to evaluate and improve the Library's training offering in areas like using and accessing electronic resources, looking for information and evaluating and appraising it.
The survey is anonymous, and you will not be asked to provide any personal data or contact details when completing it. If you have any questions about this survey and how the data will be used, please contact rlibrary@ucl.ac.uk. For more information about the training and support currently provided by RFLLS please visit our website: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/medical-school/rfhmedlib/
