Anyone who believes they have a serious issue or complaint on a matter relating to the Library should address it using the following stages:
Stage 1: Informal complaint to the member of library staff concerned or their line manager
Stage 2: Informal/Formal complaint to a Frontline Services Manager or equivalent
Stage 3: Formal complaint to the Director of Student Services
Stage 4: Formal complaint to the Academic Registrar
Note: Matters of a personal nature will generally be dealt with privately. Matters of policy which require a change in regulations or which remain unresolved will generally be taken before the Library Users' Forum.
The Head of Library Frontline Services will maintain oversight of the comments and complaints process and will produce for the Library Users' Forum at the final meeting each year an analysis of the complaints/suggestions received during the previous year, along with the Library's responses. This analysis will be used as a check to determine if general changes are required to Library practices or regulations.
