  • Remove desk swastikas

    Your name: 

    Please remove the desks that are clearly shaped like swastikas, it’s blatantly insensitive and inappropriate

  • Contact page clarity

    Your name: 
    Rebecca Repper

    On the website at the bottom of the page I went to the 'Faculty Team' link to find the email to ask my question, as the website suggested.

    This link comes up with a plethora of individual Librarian and Senior Librarians contact details at faculty level - it does not provide me with a link to my 'Faculty Team'. I have no idea which individual librarian to contact - please consider clarifying either the roles of the Librarians so that I know which is best to contact, or, provide a gateway contact email.

  • Book request

    Your name: 

    Please consider buying this book:

    Russelll L. Ackoff and Fred E. Emery, 'On Purposeful Systems - An Interdisciplinary Analysis of Individual and Social Behavior as a System of Purposeful Events' (Aldine Transaction 2006)

    I'm not sure whether there's a newer edition, see:

    Thanks a lot.

  • Hygiene concerns for library computer keyboards


    Please could the keyboards on the PC's in the libraries be cleaned, especially those on the first floor of Reid. This issue has only escalated since food was permitted to be consumed in the library from last year.

    It is an opportune time given the semester break and conclusion of exams.

    Thank you in advance


    Your name: 

    The 4th floor is ridiculously loud all the time. Please make it clearer it is a silent zone, and perhaps consider having staff regularly come up and inform people if they're being too loud. This isn't the standard one would expect of a postgraduate degree. Its loud and distracting and impossible to do work. Really really disappointing.

  • Post grad room vacuuming in EXAM STUDY WEEK 9am

    Today in the postgrad study room, there were about 5 cleaners in the postgrad room all at once. Two of whom were vacuuming. Others who were dusting and loudly emptying the bin. It is rather ridiculous to have all of this going on in a silent study room when we are trying to study for our exams, it is very distracing. This was at 9am, you would expect cleaning to be finished by this time. It would be better if cleaning was completed during the night or very early in the morning.
