Take our survey today

The Library is undertaking a consultation with researchers to better understand how the Research Hub can meet your needs, and what the Library can do to help you and your research.

Please complete this survey if you are a researcher (research student or research staff), or work in a role supporting or working with researchers. The survey takes about ten minutes to complete. The deadline is 5pm on Friday 16 June.


In September 2016, the Library opened the Research Hub on Level 13 of the refurbished Edward Boyle Library. The Research Hub is accessible to staff and postgraduate students. It contains: silent, individual, and group study space, two large bookable meeting rooms for research-related events, Airmedia and lecture capture technology, lockers for storage of personal items and research display space. It is also home to the Library Research Support and Research Data teams.

The aim of the Research Hub is to support and facilitate the University's research activities, and to foster interdisciplinary research collaborations across campus, by bringing researchers together for events and training that help underpin the University's culture of research excellence.
