Changes in the Boots Library

The following changes have been made to the Boots Library during the summer in response to student feedback from specially convened focus groups,  from programme committee meetings, and from the S3 Staff Student Forum:

  • Facebook is blocked on the PCs in the silent study areas
  • table formation on the ground floor has been altered to prevent groups from gathering around the tables (a former source of much of the noise)
  • lower ground floor is now a Group Study area where students can carry out group work (taking the groups away from the other floors – this floor has a ceiling, unlike the first and second floors so should prevent the noise from carrying to the quiet areas of the library)
  • more study spaces have been created on the lower ground floor
  • new large signs promote the silent areas and try to encourage the students to take responsibility for creating a suitable environment for studying
