UK research libraries - a success story

Research Libraries UK's latest figures show increased research library usage in its 23 university member libraries.

Research Libraries UK (RLUK) has released figures showing visits to its 23 UK university member libraries are at their highest ever recorded level.

The latest figures (2009-2010) are over 35 million visits to RLUK's member libraries, in increase of 10% from the previous year. Library users value 'traditional' functions, such as access to the physical stock, but are also responding to new services and the wide range of media resources being made available. 

For universities, the library is critical to research and teaching strategies while students consistently rate library services highly.
