Our client needs are important and based on the data we gathered around use of the space, we have prioritised 24/7 study space as the highest demand service we can provide. This is only possible at this stage if we move the print collections to SciTech, which has the infrastructure and resources to manage them, yet is still relatively nearby to the Bosch precinct. Collection access is an important part of our service and in addition to the eResources we are investing in to support learning, we are investigating ways we can support access to traditional print resources in the new space. 

Our analysis of the usage of the 2 hour collection in Medical for 2015 showed that only 41% of the collection had been borrowed and of these only 13 items had been borrowed more than 10 times.
