5 minute survey on e-book use and reading format preferences

If you are looking for a quick break from your studies and have 5 minutes to spare, we would be most grateful if you would complete this short survey on your use of e-books and your reading format preferences. The extraordinary circumstances caused by COVID have led to a significant increase in the provision of electronic format study materials to Cambridge students. The Library is interested in learning more about your personal experience of using e-books during the pandemic, and in having your opinions about whether, once university life returns to pre-pandemic conditions, you see yourself continuing to use e-books when you have access to a wider selection of print books once again. A number of College libraries are asking their students these questions. By participating in this survey, you consent to your responses being shared within the University of Cambridge, so that future purchasing decisions can be based on evidence of trends and patterns across the University. All questions are optional, and your answers will remain anonymous. The survey should take around 5 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until Friday 9th July.

Welfare One-to-One Sessions – Every day

The MCR Welfare Team will be running one-to-one welfare sessions in Easter term. MCR members can sign-up here for a one-to-one session. Members can talk to officers about particular issues or have a general chat. Everyone is welcome – whether you are a first year, third year or a partner of a student!

The MCR Welfare Team are aware that lockdown can be very socially isolating, particularly for those living alone. We strongly encourage members to reach out! The MCR Welfare Team are keen to talk to you. We could all do with a chat over a coffee and a cake at the moment!

Members resident in Cambridge can sign-up for an in-person meeting, which will take the form of a walk. Rebecca (Me!) (General Secretary) and Michaela (Treasurer) are available for in-person walks.
