We continue to receive more feedback about noise in the library than about any other issue. We can’t post all of your words, but we do take note of all of the comments, complaints, and suggestions we receive. Here are some recent excerpts:
I have seen an improvement in the levels of silence at the library, but still there are lots of people that do not respect the blue zones. Seeing that final exams are coming, I am hoping you can make a campaign to improve these a bit more…..
Carleton’s library has taken an approach I’d like the library here to consider: “Those who disturb others with cell phone ringers and conversations will be asked by staff to show their campus cards. Names and student numbers will be noted and repeat offenders fined according the Library Regulations for creating a disturbance.”
Please come down hard on noise offenders.
… I prefer quiet study, so I always go to the orange zones and every time there will be groups staying there, talking, and “whispering”….. when you’re 3 tables away from the person “whispering” it is not considered as whispering anymore….
When did the workstations at Webster become part of the orange zone? It is near impossble to work with everyone talking around me. Where can someone use workstations in a silent environment??
I don’t know anyone who actually tries to work in the Webster library anymore. Every one of my friends that I’ve talked to about it has the same problem of there being no enforcement in silent study spaces…. I think a
little more initiative from security staff in asking people to be quiet before another student has to make a complaint would help a lot. Thanks.
It is unbelievable how noisy are the orange zones!!! Where can I complain about this matter on ‘real time’. I hate to say that leaving a comment is not going to make much for me now… but I’d like to make some NOISE about this issue!!
