Volunteers will be split into two groups.  The first group will be required from 10:30- 11:30, with the second at 12:00- 13:00.

Participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.  To register your interest in taking part, please visit the Library Desk on level 0 of the Saltire Centre or email library@gcu.ac.uk.

Many thanks for your interest in helping the Library as we strive to improve our services and improve the experience of the GCU community.
