Library study tips

When using Library spaces, be considerate of others:

  • Don’t hog the computers or leave your belongings unattended.
  • Respect the noise rules of the space you are in - social, quiet and silent zones will be marked.
  • Bring your headphones if you’re planning on listening to music.
  • Don’t bring hot food or uncovered drinks into the Library.
  • Return library books on time, including the course reserve items.

We hope these tips will help make using the library spaces a little easier while you’re studying for exams.
