Add New Suggestion
(Feb 13/14) I understand there are floors in Mills library that are for silent study but these are
often times really full making it hard to find a place to sit. This results in having
to sit on other floors where talking is allowed which is okay but yelling and speaking
excessively loud should not be permitted. Is there any way to moderate this? Its
really hard to study when you can hear peoples conversations 4 tables away!
Thanks for your message. Given the high number of students using our spaces on a daily basis, the best we can do is try to designate specific spaces as Quiet or Silent. If students are being very loud in other areas can we suggest you ask them to keep it down? They may not realize how loud they are being. Alternatively you can try to find a seat in one of our designated spaces. A list of these spaces can be found at http://library.mcmaster.ca/study-space
