With the increased traffic in Thode Library we have moved to zoning the
various areas of the library for group study, quiet study and silent study
in an effort to offer spaces which match individual needs (please see
http://library.mcmaster.ca/study-space/Thode/all for more information
about Thode study spaces). The first floor has been designated as a
conversation friendly and group learning zone as we find that many students are in need of areas where they can work and study in groups. The first floor does tend to get noisy, but it works well for those students who require group study areas.
The second floor is a quiet learning zone, and the lower level has a
silent learning zone. Hopefully one of these zones will meet your needs. In
addition, the service desk will supply you with a set of earplugs if you
find you need them while studying.
The 3rd floor of Thode was recently renovated to create a home for the new Integrated Science (iSci) Program. More information can be found at:
