Set-up an online payment system so library fines can be paid without coming into the university or taking a staff members time to process a transaction.

Thank you for your suggestion. We are investigating online payments.

I am finding it difficult to comprehend the timing of scheduling mulitiple school research classes in the library silent rooms during the last week of uni when assignments are due and exams are about to be held. There are only two spaces with computers that are silent and today both of them are used for a significant period of time with a class that perhaps could be done at either earlier or later in the semester. What is the point of coming to campus if there are no spaces to use where real work can be accomplished without listening to people inane chatter. Very frustrating

Thank you for your feedback. There are other quiet study computer labs in the Library which you can use when the Training Lab is booked for classes. If you find it hard to access one when in the Library please contact one of the Library staff and they will help direct you to a quiet area. You can also borrow a laptop from the Library and continue with your work in silent study areas downstairs that have no desktop computers. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are still having problems.

I’m not sure if this is the best forum for this, but the email function on Newcat doesn’t work. I have tried many times to email lists of books to my student mail so I can print the list out and find the books on the shelves, but I have never received a single email. I have checked my spam folders and they aren’t in there.

Is it possible to get this function fixed? It is very annoying to spend over an hour tracking down books on the catalogue only to discover that I have to repeat the process from scratch once I get to uni.

Thank you for your feedback we are investigating the problem.
