New, improved, shiny computers

Over the summer new high-spec computers were installed in our computers rooms. One major improvement is that USB sticks can now automatically be recognized, making downloading or saving your work much smoother and trouble-free.
NHS staff are given network logins to access the library computers once they have joined the library-just show your card at our computer room helpdesk next time you are in to pick-up your login.

“Our (NHS) survey said…..”

St. George’s Library staff would like to say many thanks to the 250+ NHS staff who gave us your views on the quality of library services during our online survey in July. The good news is that nearly 90% of you are overall satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of our services.
However there were lots of constructive ideas about how we can improve our services, which we aim to address over the next few months. If you were one of the people who asked us to ‘tell you more’ about one of our services then you should receive an email soon. A more detailed survey report will be published on our website in September.
Finally, congratulations go to Amal Kaur, WPCT dental officer, who won our prize draw of a £150 donation to her charity of choice, Wandsworth’s Disability and Social Care Advice Service.
