A Proposal on Improving Library Service
A Proposal on Improving Library Service.【1】The school library is an important resource for university study. Making full use of the academic resources in the library can benefit college students a lot.【2】However, it fails to meet the demands of students in several aspects. It is high time to improve library service.
【3】One of students 5 complaints is insufficient support from librarians, especially when IT support is n e e d ed .【4】Therefore, relevant training courses should be offered so that librarians can provide better and timely help. 【5】 The second aspect is about the opening hours of our library, from 8：00 am to 10：00 pm, which many students think is too short in times of final exams and while preparing for the postgraduate entrance exam. 【6】So I suggest that opening hours be extended from 6：00 am to l l ：30 pm with help of student volunteers.
【7】 With the above suggestions taken into consideration, I believe, students’ satisfaction will climb, school library will embrace new development and our university will have a brighter future.
