Suggestion: noise

By Curtin Library 20 March 2017 News & events 2 Comments »

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Is there any way to stop the music that I constantly playing in the green across from the library. You can hear it all of the “silent rooms” and it kind of defeats the purpose of having them.

The Library responds…

Thank you for your comment. The Library has passed your comments and concerns to the people organising the activities on campus.

    I have had bad experiences concentrating and trying to think particularly on level 6 having to tolerate students who constantly make outbursts of unacceptable noise regardless whether it’s in a study room or not. For example a group of 5 students would prefer to sit outside of a study room therefore; talking softly than outbursts of laughing and talking loud. These outbursts would occur every 15-20 mins to a point where I was so stressed and than seening other students leaving this area due to the noise factor. (What else could it be). I went over to this group. I said to them “can you shut up this is a library or get the f…out of the library. I make no apologise for my behaviour. I just wanted less noise as I was at the time concentrating on this Academic Integrity test thingy as well as researching for my arguement essay. Why should I be asked to move to a more suitable area? Once I am settle in a so called quiet area and utilising all the table space which I needed at the time for example spreading my text books, lecture materials, pens and pad in the sense this is a good learning tool for me. This group of 5 either were not Curtin students or they were undergraduates who you would think by now that the library is a place for everyone to learn in a more peaceful environment.

      Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your studies were disturbed. I have passed on your feedback and asked Library staff who are monitoring the floors to be very alert to noise. All Library users who are being disturbed by inconsiderate behaviour are encouraged to approach a Library staff member at the time the problem is occurring so that we can take appropriate action.
