What happened to the suggestion box?

The old suggestion box is sadly missed by many students but unfortunately it would have been out of place in the new Library. We are working on a more 21st Century means of communicating our responses to your suggestions and you can expect it to be available shortly. In the meantime please don't hesitate to send us your suggestions online.


  1. At Curtin Uni Library (Perth) we still have an old-style suggestion box. We transcribe selected suggestions/comments and our responses to these and make them available on our Library Blog

  2. Like you we don't want to respond to all suggestions in a completely public forum (like this one) but we do want a way of responding to every suggestion in the Library, as the University community frequently takes a keen interest in the exchanges. For this reason we are looking at using a touchscreen that was surplus to requirements. The challenge will be enabling the making of suggestions from this screen as we don't feel we will have as much engagement if it is only possible to make suggestions from our website.
