Week 3 is here! And so begins the hunt for study spaces in the library. Here are some handy hints from library staff to getting the best seat in the house (library):
- Get to the library early! – No matter what campus you are at, if you want to guarantee yourself a study space the best thing to do is come early so check our opening hours.
- Bring your own laptop – There are various power outlets for use around the library for you to charge you device, just make sure your cords will not trip somebody over.
- Remember the silent zones – The top two levels of the Kelvin Grove and Gardens Point library are silent study areas, the second floor of the Law library is a silent study area, and Caboolture library has individual study carrels.
- Researchers’ Center – If you are a postgraduate student who fits certain criteria you may be able to request swipe access to the researchers’ center.
- Make a new friend – If someone is using a large table don’t be afraid to ask them to share.
- Get collaborative – contrary to popular belief, librarians do allow students to talk in the library, just be mindful of those around you and make sure you are not in a silent study zone.
- Book a study room – Make your life easier by planning ahead and booking a study room.
- Watch the screens! You’ll notice the digital screens near the entrance of our library branches can let you know where available computers are.
- Ask us! Don’t forget the librarians are here to help you and can suggest good places on campus for you to study.
