Using the Library

Visiting our campus libraries

Our libraries are shared spaces used by staff, students, alumni and members of the local community.
When you are visiting our campus libraries we ask that you:

  • Take care of yourself:
    • Use library spaces and equipment in a way that supports your own safety and the safety of others.
    • Look after your belongings and avoid leaving your valuables unattended.
  • Take care of others:
    • Respect other library users by keeping noise to appropriate levels, especially in designated quiet study areas.
    • Keep to the group booking limits each day and cancel room bookings if you no longer need them.
    • Log off and move away from the computers when you have finished using them.
  • Take care of our spaces:
    • Keep our libraries clean and safe. Please remove rubbish and enjoy hot foods outside the library.
