You said: We like to be able to eat and drink in the library, but we don't like the smell of hot food in the study areas.
So our policy is:
In Silent and Quiet Study Zones, please set your phone to silent mode, and leave the area if you need to take a call.
Phones can be used in the Group Study Zones or in the Cash in Main Library.
Your books will automatically renew for up to 12 months, unless somebody else requests them. In this case, you will receive notification that the due date has changed. If the book is returned by this date, you will not be fined. Fines will be charged if the book is returned after the new due date.
Silent Study – for individual, silent study. Conversation and other noise disturbance should be kept to an absolute minimum
Quiet Study – for both individual and group study. Please keep conversation, mobile phones calls and other interactions at a low volume to avoid disturbing others
Group study – for both individual and collaborative work. Please keep conversations and group work at a moderate level to reduce the impact on those working in adjacent study spaces.
In non-designated areas, talking is permitted, providing others are not disturbed.
We do not operate a booking system for PCs or study spaces. Please have consideration for your fellow users by not leaving unattended personal items at study desks, particularly at busy times when study spaces are in demand.
To maximise availability of PCs for all students, we also ask that you do not leave a PC logged on in your absence.
The library is cleaned every day before opening, but you can help to maintain a pleasant environment by leaving your study space as you would wish to find it. Recycling bins are provided in each area for your litter. Wipes are available in the library if you wish to clean your keyboard/mouse before or after use.
We realise that accidents do happen – if you spill any food or drink, please let a member of library staff know so that it can be cleaned up as quickly as possible.
Smoking is not permitted in any University Building - this includes the use of e-cigarettes and vaping.
Legislation prohibits smoking from taking place close to the entrances or windows of buildings, to prevent secondary smoke inhalation by others. For this reason, LLC staff may ask people smoking too close to the building to relocate.
