University Library Suggestions

Reid Library

Reid 1/F entrance

Your name: 
Bokuwamou Shindeiru

Any reason why the 1st floor Enterance is still closed. It's been closed for a few years now. It would help to distribute traffic away from ground floor as it is hard to find study spaces there.

Maintenance Reid Library

Your name: 
Jeremy

There are a number of circular fluorescent globes that need replacing on the north side of floor 3 at the Reid and maybe elsewhere. The doors to the toilets east side of floor 1 & 3 could do with hinges lubricating to reduce squeaking. Thank you.

END Auto sign-out of OneSearch

It is bloody annoying to have OneSearch sign out automatically after a few minutes. Facebook doesn't require it why can't you!!!

If the issue is security well consider this: Having it log out automatically is only useful on public computers in the library. For people using OneSearch at home or college it is not helpful, it is more of a hindrance and distraction.

In fact I would argue it is a greater security risk to have it log out automatically because it increases the likelihood of advanced keyloggers retrieving sign in information.

lack of help

The lady at the service desk just did not want to help me. Can the university please consider hiring staff that will be understanding and be ready to help? as soon as i approached her I could sense that she just wanted to brush me off as soon as she could. i needed help with printing and instead she told me to go to uni print when I've already spent over $10 here trying to print a document. Added stressors are not appreciated.

Quiet zone on first floor

It's gotten to the point where the half-hourly reminders over the PA that "this floor is for quiet study, not collaborative study" are more disruptive than the students who are actually speaking. Not to mention the staff member who walks around and threatens these students that he is going to call security to kick them out - speaks at the top of his lungs. Seriously, first floor is nowhere near as loud as ground floor, and if people studying want silence they can use the quiet study room or go upstairs!

pls tell security guard to be quiet : [

the security guard at the door at reid library had the communication radio on very loud volume this morning (the one who sits there overnight)
