Subject: RHD/post-grad space in the “Flower room” level of the Auchmuty Library.

as a post-graduate student I use often to go in the post-graduate dedicated (and more silent) area of the Flower Room level of the Auchmuty library, however, over the time I’ve noticed that desks, PCs places (and PCs) in there are not as clean as those in other areas of the Auchmuty library (e.g., those in the AIC space). I’m wondering if this is happening as a consequence of an electronic lock on the doors that can be unlocked by both post-graduate and librarian cards but not by a cleaner of the library? If so, it would be there a way for the cleaner to have a suitable card to access the area and keep it clean as much as the rest of the other library study areas?

Thanks a lot for your consideration.
Kind regards,

Dear Beatrice
Thank you for your feedback. In each break PCS are cleaned throughout the library. Unfortunately students working in the PG room requested that the cleaning not be done as the noise of cleaning and the smell of cleaning products was inconvenient. Next break the cleaning of the pcs will be advertised in advance and students will asked to relocate for the short time to allow the process completed.

I will also ask for additional cleaning of the area by contract cleaning staff.

Many thanks

Ive been using your great tutorial on endnote but now i can’t find it. Can you tell me where it is please. Ive looked at some on youtube and they dont cover what is in your tutorial. its great. i need to quick please help

Thanks for the feedback – The library is now utilsing the excellent information from Thomson Reuters ( the company that produces Endnote ). The web details are below. If you require assistance with endnote and you are a postgraduate student you can always contact your Faculty Librarian or Liaison Librarian.

Sorry, couldn’t find a new question section which matched my question.I’m wondering if a book/textbook can be reserved for pickup on a particular date in the future?Thanks.

Books on shelf can only be placed on hold from another campus library not from your home library.
