UEL MA Students Archive Survey and August Opening Hours

Dear UEL Refugee Studies MA Students,

I hope that you will be able to spare a few minutes to complete our online survey  about the Refugee Archive. I have created the short survey (only 10 questions) to try and get some feedback on the service provided by the Archive and how it can be improved for the future. The survey is Ananymous and I will circulate feedback once the survey has closed.

The link to the survey is here : http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DPLV8MP and the survey will be open until Friday 2nd September 2011. A link will also be available on the main Refugee Archive webpage (www.uel.ac.uk/rca) and via our blog (https://refugeearchives.wordpress.com/)

On a different note, both my colleague Caroline and I will be taking annual leave at various times during the month of August. Please contact me via email to confirm opening times during this period or ask at the Docklands Library issue desk counter if the Archive is closed.

Many thanks and best wishes,
