Unattended belongings in our Libraries before and during exams

With the next exam period approaching, all of our libraries are becoming busier as revision begins in earnest. To ensure all our students have fair access to a study space during this busy time we would like to bring to your attention the Library policy concerning unattended belongings.

The reason for the policy is to ensure that study spaces are not blocked by readers leaving their belongings unattended at a desk for an extended period of time, in effect reserving a desk. This inconveniences others, particularly at a time when demand for study space is high, and we kindly ask that you do not do this. If you see desks being reserved in this way please feel free to speak with library staff.

If you do leave belongings at a study space please note that items left unattended for more than 30 minutes may be removed for safe keeping by library staff, in accordance with Library Regulation 5.5. A notice will be left on the desk to indicate this has happened to your belongings.

In the Sir Duncan Rice Library, if this happens to your belongings before 5pm please refer to Library Floor staff to retrieve your belongings. For Floor 7 please go to the Floor 6 Office. After 5pm belongings can be collected from the Information Centre on Floor 1. At Taylor and Medical Libraries please speak with staff at the issue desks.

Notices will be displayed on desks to indicate this policy. We kindly ask all readers to please think of their fellow students and be considerate to the needs of others also revising hard for important exams. Good luck to everyone with their exams.

Please look after your belongings in our libraries

As the Library goes to 24 hour opening with the exams fast approaching we would like to remind all students of the importance of looking after your personal belongings.

Please do not walk away from your desk leaving your laptops, phones, bags or jackets unattended for any length of time.
