Suggestion

(Sep 30/09) leaving the learning commons open serves NO purpose. Noise level out of bloody control, food everywhere, garbage spilled on desks, music playing from laptops, iPods, iPhones and its getting worse. Students are looking for places to STUDY (NOT hang out) on Sat. nights. So the question is: Is there a place to STUDY during the late night hours? i.e. (after 12 a.m.)

Library response:

Sorry, at the moment this is the only area open for late night study.

Might I suggest you remind those around you that your purpose for being there is to study and ask that they keep the noise down a bit? Why not suggest they use headphones? We do require this in Regulations Governing Personal Behavior( http://library.mcmaster.ca/policies/behaviour). We will see if we can raise awareness on this specific issue through some of our other news devices.

Also, as far as the area being dirty, additional custodial services have been arranged to make sure this area is kept cleaner in the evenings and on weekends.
