(Mar 3/14) One concern I have is the lack of adequate 100% silent study space in most of McMasters libraries. Mills 6th floor is designed to be totally quiet, yet there are two elevators that are constantly making that annoying noise that signals when the elevator arrives at the floor. Is there any way to disable that noise on the 6th floor? Because of the floor layout, there really is no space up there that would be free of this nuisance.

Library response:

Thanks for sending in your comment. Unfortunately we are not able to disable these notification bells since they are used both as a safety mechanism to indicate when a car has arrived and for those users with little or no sight to indicate when a car has arrived. Perhaps you could consider using headphones while using this space to ensure total silence.
