Suggestion: noise

By Curtin Library 15 March 2017 News & events Comments Off on Suggestion: noise

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

I have been spending plenty of time on levels 5 and 6 in the recent weeks as I normally consider these to be the quietest floors in the library. I spent so many hours on these floors studying last year and never have I experienced a time when there has been this much noise. It would make a world of difference if these loud large groups of people that loiter on these floors be broken down and sent out side or to level 2 to gossip (it’s always talk about snapchat, kik, instagram, boyfriends/girlfriends, exes, facebook, yada yada yada).

The “library police” were always very good last year and even told me off once and twice as a first year which taught me decent habits. But it’s week 3 and I have not seen them on either levels yet. I understand they’re also stuck at the printers and helping other first years learn their way around, but this has to be stopped immediately before the semester gets too far underway. I guess on the same note I can confirm the strict policing last year during the exam period was very good and I was happy to the strict signs regarding being courteous of others.

Thanks for reading :)

The Library responds…

Thank you for the feedback. I will ask Library staff who are monitoring the areas to be alert to the concerns you raise. If you experience an unacceptable level of noise, it can help if you are able to immediately tell a Library staff member, who will investigate and address any inconsiderate behaviour in the Library.

You can report problems like this to This email address is monitored all the time the Library is providing full service and issues will be attended to as soon as possible once they are drawn to our attention.
