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 2 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.
