NTU has agreed to make a number of changes to its library service thanks to feedback passed on to them from the Students’ Union.
In the last year, the SU has managed to secure 150 more study spaces in the City library and 50 additional computers at Clifton campus. Now, in line with comments and changes put forward by NTSU’s Academic Reps, another 50 new study spaces and 24-hour access to library laptops are soon to be implemented at Brackenhurst Library too.
Academic Reps act as the voice of their school or course, gathering feedback from their peers to pass on to the Students’ Union who work alongside NTU to implement it and these are just some of the positive outcomes they’ve contributed towards.
As well as all day access to laptops, the new changes mean that students who borrow them can do so outside of the library itself too, allowing for more flexible study.
With Academic Rep nominations now open, it’s a great time think about how you could get involved in making changes like these.
VP Education, Jelena Matic, said: “Here at NTSU, we’re committed to making sure our members have the best academic experience possible and our Academic Reps are essential to making this happen. It’s always great to see such positive outcomes like this one and I’d advise anyone who is considering running to be a course or school rep in the upcoming elections to do so. It’s a great opportunity to enhance your CV and make important improvements like these to your university.”
