TRIAL AUDIT RESULTS

General comments (neither commendations nor recommendations)

  • There were comments from some HDR students on the poor library resources, and their consequent need to use other libraries such as those at the University of Sydney and ANU, for example.

  • The library has to give careful consideration to its ability to provide a quality service to the planned growth in research effort.

Preliminary audit comments

PRELIMINARY AUDIT COMMENTS

  • Library service was rated very positively by the Panel

    BUT

  • The Panel noted that the collection was variable with regard to its ability to support research


Impressions

IMPRESSIONS

  • It’s extremely time & resource intensive

  • Every Panel is different

  • You can’t predict what the Panel will ask about

  • Tell it warts and all – if it isn't good, tell them what you are doing about it

  • Don’t forget the good things – they want good news stories too
