We know that the Forum Library can get very busy during peak times of day, especially as deadlines or exams approach. You’ve told us that it causes problems when other Library users take up more than one space or “save seats” by leaving their belongings and then going away.
In response, we worked closely with the Student’s Guild Representatives and with individual students to come up with guidelines for using study seats in our Library spaces.
Watch out for cards like this around the Library:
What to do:
When taking a break of up to one hour: please always leave a card, fill in the time you left and be sure to return within 60 minutes.
If you will be gone longer than an hour: please clear your desk so that others can use the space.
Remember the Library is a public space! Never leave valuable items unattended; always take them with you or lock them in a Forum Locker
Each card can be reused up to 20 times.
This is a student led scheme
We hope you will continue working with us to make the “Taking a Break” scheme a success.
If would like to share your thoughts on the scheme then please send us an email or fill in one of the comments cards you’ll find around the Library.
