(Nov 17/16) Can students please be reminded that the library is for studying and that talk should be kept
to a minimum !! There are certain groups of students who are under the impression that the
library is a meeting / social space and do everything but study there. These students are
distracting to all of those around them and make it very hard for serious students to
actually study. If students are participating in group projects study rooms are available, if
HSL is busy other libraries also have these study rooms :)

Library response:

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. As you have pointed out, there are spaces in the library that are designated for group study (like the study rooms) and other areas that are designated for quiet and silent study. The following webpage provides an overview of these areas: http://hsl.mcmaster.ca/services/study/index.html. I will remind library staff to monitor the silent study areas, but if we miss something, please feel free to approach someone at the main desk and ask for assistance. There are however, spaces on the upper level, in the History of Medicine Room and in the Reserve Reading Room, where in conversation is permitted. If you would like more information about our silent, quiet, and group study zones, please contact me directly.
