About Us

Our aim is to help all learners make best use of our services to support their work or studies, whether on campus or at a distance. We are also committed to the further development of an inclusive learning environment.

Learning Services incorporates;

  • Library Services – Ormskirk, Aintree and Manchester
  • Media and ICT support
  • Support for SpLD
  • Academic skills
  • Learning Technology Development (incorporating Blackboard)

These services are provided in the University Library and Learning Innovation Centre (LINC) on the Ormskirk campus, at Aintree Library at the University Hospital Aintree and Manchester Library.

This site will provide you with an introduction to the wealth of resources (both real and virtual) available plus the staff expertise to help maximise these resources.  Whatever your learning preference and need, our staff can provide direction, support, and guidance. We aim to be responsive to both learners’ needs and to the University’s strategic focus and direction.

Customer Service Excellence

Customer Service Excellence (CSE) is an award given by the government for excellence in customer service. Learning Services have held the award (previously known as Charter Mark) for over 12 years!

At our re-accreditation in January 2016 the assessor gave this feedback:

“There is a determination shown by staff to provide a quality service and go above and beyond expectations of customers. A positive caring attitude in their approach and an obvious interest in meeting their customers’ needs was evident during the assessment. It was clear that all staff are committed and motivated to promote the best service possible through a customer focused approach.”

As part of our commitment to providing an excellent customer experience we have a selection of service standards and key performance indicators.

We actively encourage you, our customers, to give us feedback on how you feel the service can be improved – we listen and take action if we possibly can. To give us some feedback simply fill in a comments form at any of our libraries or online. You can also contact us by email, phone, 24/7 live chat, text, or on Twitter or Facebook.

Measuring Our Performance

We are committed to providing high quality services, resources and facilities to all our customers.  One of the ways we achieve this aim, is to use key performance indicators (KPIs).

Our KPIs for 17/18 are based around our values of customer service excellence, operational excellence and staff engagement. Our performance against our KPIs is assessed every term and published annually.
