The library closes too early on weekends. Many times I have been leaving at closing itme, with many still in the Library, but down in the AIC it is full to capacity, with queues for computers, laptop and reading areas are full and there is absolutely no where to relocate too. It is still early in the semester and only going to get worse.
Also I think the keys for group rooms needs to be reintroduced, so many people just go room shopping and never check if it is booked online, then it is difficult to make them get out when you have it booked, or people come and interrupt you looking for a vacant room.
Thanks for your feedback . The library will be looking at extended hours prior to exams in october ,
Please see library staff if you require assistance with a room you have booked.
Hi there needs to be a foam roll available for students to use in AIC ! the long hours of study caused lots of back pain ! Also i wish that a treadmill and a bike can be put into the journal room in AIC ! some cardio will be great with study ! The light is too dim at the research desk in the journal room in AIC ! bad for eyes !!! Also I wish there’s a cash converter in AIC for people to use so that they can use the vending more easily so that I can constantly purchasing chips and eat them !!!! Also hope the vending machine sell cup noodles !!!!! Seriously Please consider that !!!!!! T H A N K S H E A P S !!! If we can’t have a pokie machine in AIC I’d love to have a proper vending machine that feeds me 24/7 with my credit card !!
Hi thanks for the feedback.
Journals Room space will soon change to be zoned to accommodate group and silent use. Your feedback about the light is noted.
Vending machine products and payments will be reviewed with the machine owners to see what options may be available to change.
If you need to take a study break away from the computers The Forum offers competitive memberships or you may like the following article.
I have had many issues with Students overstaying their time in group rooms and having to be prompted to leave, and soo many times I have come to a room I have booked to find someone else in it, and having to argue with people to get them out. Students are not bothering to check if the room is booked, and I think the need for rooms to be locked and keys having to be obtained needs to be introduced again.
On Sunday at around 5pm there was still quite a number of students in the library, downstairs in the AIC, the computers were full, the laptop sections including part near coffee shop was full, and there was even a lot of people in the reading area opposite cafe. I have found this often mid-semester on a Saturday and Sunday, and I feel the weekend closing time for the library needs to be later;
Thank you for your feedback, if you ever you have any problems with students not vacating a booked room please see library staff for assistance.
Your feedback on Library hours is also very useful, it will assist with planning for second semester and 2016
