Library and Digital Support has a policy allowing users to hold discussions within its libraries, media workshops and computing (open access) areas. The noise policy seeks to create a variety of study environments to meet the needs of all our users.
Such a policy is required in order to protect those wishing to study quietly or silently, whilst allowing group discussion, social interaction and use of the facilities.
Consideration should be shown to others, especially in open plan areas where different types of study space are not divided by separate rooms.
We will designate and advertise certain areas for different types of study, as space and buildings permit.
Group or casual areas
Quiet study areas
Silent study areas
