Revision week and exams: make sure you know the library rules!

With the revision and exam period almost upon us the library can get extremely busy. With this in mind we would like to remind our users of the food and drink rules that apply in Taylor Library.

Food is permitted provided it is not hot, overly fragrant or noisy. So for example sandwiches, salads and last night’s pizza are fine. Soup, curry and crisps/popping candy are not. Drinks (excluding alcohol) are permitted under the condition that hot drinks be covered with a fixed lid. In addition, while drinks are permitted throughout the library under the aforementioned conditions, food is NOT allowed in the PC classroom or near PCs in other areas of the library, in Project Rooms 1 and 2 or the silent areas in D block.

To check what is (or isn’t) allowed in each of the library zones, look at the relevant signs on the tables or, ask a member of staff.

It is our aim to provide a harmonious study environment for all service users at all times. Please help us to do so!

Good luck with your exams!

Taylor Library Heavy Demand drop-box

The Taylor Library self return machine

As exams approach and the Library gets busier we’d like to remind students of the Heavy Demand drop-box, in to which you can return any Taylor Heavy Demand items you have prior to our opening at 9am. The box is placed outside the Taylor Library entrance at around 7:30am every weekday. This is to give you as much opportunity to return HD items before the 10:30am due time as possible. Late Heavy Demand items will accrue an immediate fine of 75p. After one hour this will increase by a further 75p, and will continue to do so for each subsequent hour the item is late. Nobody wants the added stress of library fines at this or any time of year. Help us help you avoid them by making use of the drop-box!

Best of luck with the exams and keep your money for the pub when they’re finished!

Drink your fill!

We are pleased to announce that Taylor Library now has a water fountain, just in time to keep you fully hydrated throughout the revision and exam period. It is located opposite the current periodical shelves, just beyond the issue desk. Please be aware that the drip tray is only shallow and does not drain.

Enjoy!

And as ever, best of luck with the exams.

Food in Taylor Library

Don’t be this guy!

With the revision and exam period almost upon us the Library can get extremely busy. With this in mind we’d like to remind users of the food and drink policy. Following last year’s food and drink trial, food is permitted provided it is not hot, overly fragrant or noisy. So for example sandwiches, salads and last night’s pizza are fine. Soup, curry and crisps/popping candy are not. Drinks (excluding alcohol) are permitted under the condition that hot drinks be covered with a fixed lid. In addition, while drinks are permitted throughout the library under the aforementioned conditions, food is NOT allowed in the PC classroom, project rooms 1 and 2 or the silent areas in D block. Just ask a member of staff if you are unsure of anything. It is our aim to provide a harmonious study environment for all service users at all times. Please help us to do so.

Thanks,
