Please help us to make the Library, Learning Technology and Archives and Collections services at GSA extra good by filling in our annual survey which is out now at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LRsurvey2019
The survey responses are massively influential not just in determining how we prioritise areas of service development in Learning Resources, but in forming part of the evidence based we use to obtain institutional support and, if necessary, funding to continue to make the adaptions and improvements students need. We have 13 years of data and have used this in recent years to demonstrate the important of, for example, extending Library opening by 50%, replacing Blackboard with Canvas, and building a proper Reading List service.
Use the survey to tell us what you like about the services, what you want to see more of and what you would like to see changed.
The survey will be open until the 3rd February. There is a prize draw to encourage your participation and the winner chooses £100 of either book vouchers or Paint & Mortar vouchers.

As it’s the season of goodwill we have prepared a playlist of some classic festive viewing in case the TV (or Netflix) is rubbish…
We will be in touch in the new year with more information on what will surely prove to be a very popular resource, including how to add content, embed clips into Canvas, create playlists and request programmes.
In the meantime, have a great festive break!
We have just added Bloomsbury Architecture Library to our portfolio of online resources, part of our commitment to increasing the number of high-quality electronic resources available across GSA.
Bloomsbury Architecture Library features a wide selection of works on architecture and related disciplines including urbanism, landscape, and interiors. It approaches the subject through architectural history and theory, connecting to contemporary design practice and the best current thinking about the issues that matter including: global perspectives, politics, sustainability, and the future of architectural design. The platform offers access to a carefully curated collection of fully-searchable text and image content, incorporating the new edition of Sir Banister Fletcher’s Global History of Architecture, alongside peer-reviewed cutting edge academic research and a wealth of images.
