The Main Library is a shared resource and we want to make sure that it is used fairly. Regrettably, seat hogging has become prevalent, meaning many students are unable to find and use a study space, and we have received many complaints about this.
From the 2nd May, Library Services will be introducing seat monitoring, placing leaflets on left items. If belongings are left for more the 60 minutes, the space is considered available and people looking for a study space are free to move the belongings and take the space. Library staff will assist if students wish.
