Potential noise disturbance in The Sir Duncan Rice Library – 15 to 22 July

There will be important work carried out in The Sir Duncan Rice Library from Monday 15 to Friday 22 July 2019 and we would like to apologise in advance for any noise resulting from the work.

The activities which will take place during that week are:

  • Insulation repairs on the roof
  • Replacement of classroom PCs across all floors
  • Carpet replacement in the North stairwell*

*With regards to the work taking place in the North stairwell, please note that there will be no access from the Ground Floor, therefore we kindly ask that you use the lifts instead. The South stairwells can also be used, but are only accessible between Floors 1 and 6.

If you are affected by the potential noise and require a quieter area, please make use of our Silent Study rooms on Floors 3-6. Alternatively, the Taylor Library is also open on the Old Aberdeen campus.

We apologise for the disturbance and any inconvenience.

Noise in the Library: how to let us know if you are being disturbed

We ask all users of The Sir Duncan Rice Library to be considerate to others studying. Exams can be a time of stress so, please think of other library users as you revise and while you move around the building. As you walk out of the library, remember that people sat in their seats are still working.

silence

The Sir Duncan Rice Library provides a range of spaces for different types of use, from completely silent to more informal group working areas. In general, the library gets quieter as you move up the floors, with floor 7 being the quietest. It is also noisier near the lifts but gets quieter as you move across to the south side of the building.

Find out more about our silent study spaces in the relevant “Did You Know…?” post. 

During this important time, we try to ensure that a quiet, safe and clean study environment is in place for all users.  Please remember that if you are being disturbed by others using the library, you can speak to library staff. You can find us in the offices and information points of Floors 1-6 Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 17:00. All other times speak with members of staff at the Information Centre on Floor 1 and on the Welcome Desk. For any comments or questions on our service provision and policies, do not hesitate to get in touch through Facebook, Twitter or via email.
