Suggestion: Use of Laptops

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Just wanted to ask about the use of laptops while sitting in front of an unused computer on level 3.

Suggestion: Soundproofing Rooms

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library… Very good rooms although have had difficulty with people in other rooms being very loud!! Rooms need to be either monitored better or installed with sound proof walls because the noise is very hard to study with. The Library responds… Thank you for the feedback. The Library would like to […]
