Suggest ways we can improve Libraries Australia Search

During the 2012-13 financial year, the National Library of Australia is redeveloping the Libraries Australia Search Service interface and database. (Development work will not be undertaken on any of the other Libraries Australia services, e.g. LADD, Cataloguing Client etc.) While the main objective of the redevelopment is to provide a faster, more stable search experience for our valued Libraries Australia members, changes will be made to how the Search Service looks on the web and how you interact with it.

To ensure we meet the aims of the Libraries Australia Search Redevelopment project, we need your involvement. While we gathered very useful information during our 2011 general survey, we are following this up with other activities to help us collect further information about your experiences.  

Whether you use Libraries Australia Search for cataloguing, acquisitions or reference activities, let us know how we can improve the service. Are there any problems, frustrations, or anything particularly good about using Libraries Australia Search?

We would be very grateful if you are able to take a few minutes to complete our three question online survey. There is no restriction on the number of times you can send comments via the survey and there is currently no survey end date. This is because we see this information gathering activity as an ongoing process during the course of the Project.

You can complete the survey here:

For your convenience we have also provided a direct link to the survey entitled ‘Have your say - Suggest ways we can improve Libraries Australia Search’ on each page of the Libraries Australia Search web interface.

Help us to build a better Libraries Australia Search service for you.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns about the Project or the survey. 

With thanks
