Abstract: In the summer of 1997 the Marie Curie Centre, Newcastle approached the libraries of the Universities of Newcastle and Northumbria at Newcastle to assist in developing a library and information service (LIS) strategy. It was acknowledged that before the LIS strategy could be established preparatory investigation was needed to ensure the effective and efficient allocation of resources. A user needs analysis was conducted over a 3-month period, including a literature search, questionnaire and interviews. The findings, which indicated that the appointment of a professional librarian was crucial, have ensured that the LIS being developed is underpinned by a strong evidence base.
