It is stated in the library code of conduct:
“Disruptive noise is not permitted. This includes any noise or activity that disturbs the concentration of other users such as loud talking, noise from electronic devices and long conversations on electronic devices. In addition, electronic devices should be turned on silent mode throughout the Library.”
So why does it feels like I’m in a food court while I’m the university library?
Please find something to stop that… It was super cool until the beginning of this year…
Thank you for your comment.
I am sorry to hear that you’ve been experiencing noisy conditions in the Library. You are right, the Library Code of Conduct says exactly that. The libraries are getting busier and busier as the term progresses – we have noted the increase in activity and noise, and have study hall monitors roaming the library to help ensure that rules are being followed.
If you encounter an unpleasant library work environment in the future, please do not hesitate to report it using the Ask-a-Librarian Live Chat option (http://library.concordia.ca/help/questions/) or in person at the Reference Desk. If it occurs after service hours, you can alert the security agent.
