The idea that user consultation is central to effectiveness, quality and efficiency is still relatively new in many public service organisations, including libraries. This paper reviews the methods available and describes the results of a survey of all UK public library authorities to find out what methods they employ, their effectiveness, and in which context they are used. Recommendations are also made for improving user consultation within libraries.
