Suggestion: using laptops at computer spaces

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Hi, I always see people sitting at the computers (specifically on level 3) while only using their laptops! I find this very frustrating as I (and many others) are walking around trying to find a computer and these people are taking up spaces. Just today in a space of 5 […]

Suggestion: noise

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Hi, I am a research student at Curtin.

Suggestion: cleanliness

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… I study at the library almost every day for the past 2 years. I recently found that there are so many gum under tables which is very disgusting. I enjoy laying on a couch on lv4 while reading my books, but whenever I look up, the gums under the table […]

Suggestion: hand dryers

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… I was wondering if it would be possible if in the Men’s toilets there could be paper towels in addition to the hand dryer, as it is not very effective and takes a long time. The Library responds… Thank you for the feedback. To reduce the Library’s environmental impact and […]

Suggestion: standing desk location

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Hi, I like to use the standing desks on level 3.
