Feedback from student focus groups suggested that students are concerned about desk hogging. Some students are leaving their belongings behind while they disappear for long periods. This is a particular problem during revision and assessment periods.
It was suggested that the library trials an 'advice notice' process to encourage students not to reserve desk space and disappear for long periods of time.
This is what students suggested and the Library has implemented:
Posters will be placed around the library with information about the trial, please do give us your feedback.
Information about the extended opening hours for the assessment period can be found on the blog.
