Suggestions - Library and Information Commons


May, 2017


Hi there, I was thinking that it might be useful for students if the University had a subscription to Lynda.com - there seems to lots of useful tutorials on there that students at other institutions have access to but we do not. Cheers, Bob

    Hi Bob,

That is an interesting suggestion, unfortunately we at the Information Commons do not make decisions regarding the UOAs subscriptions.

Kind Regards,

Is it possible that the heaters in the General Library to only come on when the temperature drops to a certain degree, maybe around 10 degrees Celcius? I always feel that it is a waste having to open all the windows when the heaters are on because of the heat. Best regards.

    Heating in the General Library
    The heating in the General Library is centrally controlled and is set to automatically turn off once the outside temperature is 19 degrees but takes time to respond to temperature changes. If it gets too hot the best option is opening some windows.

I will forward your comments to the maintenance people.

Please be more vigilant in policing students behaviour in the evening because it is very disruptive to our study.

    Quiet study
    The library is keen to provide an environment conducive to quiet study.

The library guard at the front entrance is employed to patrol the floors to enforce the library rules regarding disruptive behaviour and consuming inappropriate food/drink.

You are welcome to approach the guard to advise of him/her of such behaviour – if there is no one at the security desk please visit the Lending Desk and a staff member will follow-up on your complaint.

Hi, I always find when im studying down in Kate Edgar IC0 there are never enough powerpoint for charging. Perhaps adding multiboards (attaching them to the desk) would reduce this problem.

    Extra power-points on Level 0 of the KEIC
    Hi Michaela,

Please be assured that this is an issue that Libraries and Learning Services are aware of. Unfortunately, solving the problem of additional power-points is more complex than adding multi-boards, as there are safety issues associated with overloading the electrical problem.

Kind regards,
