The Library has introduced two silent zones- one on the first floor and one on the top floor. These areas are intended for absolute silent study. Please respect the intentions of others using the zone by observing the following rules:
- No talking
- No phones
- No food
- No headphones
- Laptops on silent
It is intended that these zones will be self-policing.
Study spaces in the rest of the Library are designated as Quiet Zones, where short, whispered conversations will be tolerated. Mobiles should be switched to silent and calls taken outside the Library. There should be no noise emanating from headphones. Note that the consumption of food and drink, other than bottled water, is not allowed in any part of the Library.
Group Study Rooms are available for Collaborative Study.
