From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Why does it take 40minutes, 6 computers, 2 computer restarts, and 11 login attempts to finally be able to get on to a computer?

The Library responds…
Thank you for your feedback.  The Library is working with CITS to deploy a new system onto the computers that should rectify the issue.

Suggestion: Level 6 Room Availability

By Curtin Library 22 November 2017 News & events Comments off

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Hi, I noticed the closed computer rooms on 6 and honestly have been really disappointed, I often study there because of the wide tables and good lighting as well as computer availability, to have those rooms closed, especially during the end of semester are a real bummer. I bumped into a library official who said it was because of loud noise complaints, if so could at least 6.106 be opened and library worker rounds increased so that if those people come about they can be removed? I really hope this can be solved by next semester. Thank you

The Library responds…
Thank you for letting us know your study preferences especially around your use of level 6 in the Library. The Library assesses the study environment designed to foster exam preparation on level 6 after each semester and I will make sure your comment and suggestions are included in this process after the end of this semester.

Suggestion: Food Monitoring in Postgraduate Room

By Curtin Library 20 November 2017 News & events Comments off

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Hi there,

The “no food” rule in the postgraduate room is not being obeyed.

This exam period I have seen people eating everything from apples and potato chips through to kebabs and pizzas (yes, really!)

It is very difficult to concentrate when someone is loudly working their way through a bag of Doritos!

I recommend a sign at every desk explaining that other students have complained about people eating.

Thank you !
David.

The Library responds…

Thank you for bringing your concerns about the Postgrad Room to our attention. You are right. The rule for that room is no food or drink except water. I have asked the team to increase the monitoring of the room and passed to them your suggestion about a sign pointing out the impact on other students. If you are studying in there and someone is behaving poorly and impacting on your study environment you can bring this to the attention of Library staff as it happens and they will assist you.
