Break up your study sessions: The Library’s new study break cards

One of the best ways to absorb loads of information when studying is to take regular and rejuvenating breaks away from your study …and often! Making the most of taking a good break from study will help you be more productive when you do study.

That’s why starting from Monday 3rd June, the Library will release two new cards across our Library spaces:

BRB Card

Taking a break? Simply grab a card, write on the card what time you left for your break & pop it on top of your stuff so everyone knows you’ll be back within half an hour.

Hey!

Left your stuff unattended for a long time, without a note saying when you’ll return?  Remember the Library is a shared space and this can be frustrating for other students looking for a place to study.

Library staff might place a ‘Hey!’ card on your belongings, letting other students know they can carefully move your stuff to the side and use the desk. Next time you take a break, make sure you leave a BRB card.

Remember, it is Library policy that if you find a desk unattended for a long period of time with someone else’s belongings – you can carefully push their stuff aside to use the desk (regardless if there is a Hey! card on their stuff or not)

Above all, the Library is here to support you and our students (you!) are our top priority. Unfortunately, sometimes people can be pretty awful and take things that aren’t theirs. So please always remember to keep your valuable belongings with you at all times.

Need a desk? Book-a-Desk!

Ever wander around the Library looking for a desk? Wander no more! We extended the trial of a desk booking system for Semester 1.

Students and staff may now book an individual desk at Fisher, Law, and SciTech libraries as well as in the Quarter . As part of an extended trial, approximately 115 desks will be bookable just like a meeting room.
