Suggestions - Library and Information Commons


November, 2013


Noise is an issue that is particularly evident at the library. It would be much appreciated if you could monitor the noise/chatter levels to a minimum, as the library is occupied by students who would like to concentrate on the work. Furthermore, the noise in groundfloor echos throughout the second level, therefore creates a rather buzzy atmosphere, which does not assist with concentrating. I believe this is via the channel above the stairs (on the right hand side to the lending desk).

    Hi Katie
Thanks for a timely reminder about keeping the noise down. I will pass this on to the library staff. You might be interested to know that as from semester 1 next year we will have a dedicated quiet zone (formerly a staff area) available for students.
Best wishes

Hi, Please turn off the heating, libraries are full and its pumping away. A few people Ive spoken with have voiced this opinion. Please :)

    Heating in the General Library
    The General Library heating automatically switches off when the outside temperature is 20 degrees outside or 20 degrees inside. The heating cannot be randomly turned off and on as it is a complex system.
I suggest that you find a study seat on the cooler side of the library building.
