University Library Suggestions

University Library welcomes your suggestions and comments about our services, facilities and collections.

  • Hand washing in the toilets

    The UWA hygiene flyer in some of the toilets suggest that hands should be washed for around 20 seconds. Can we adjust the press button taps in the science library so that the water stays on for more than half a second? It's difficult to properly wash your hands when you can't actually get both of them under the water at once.

  • Law Library noise

    Can you please tell students on the ground floor to be quiet? The noise has gotten so bad that unless the Teaching Rooms are available, it is impossible to find a quiet spot with a computer...

    Also, I don't know if it's within the library's power but can you try and make sure the noise level in the courtyard doesn't get too bad either?

  • More books please

    Please provide more books to borrow especially text recommended by Lecturer

  • Onesearch

    hello, can you change the default search on the library homepage back to the catalogue search and just have onesearch as an optional tab? i find that onesearch is very slow, has a clunky interface, involves more steps than necessary simply to access a database, and requires SSO login when i access it from home.

  • Science Library Toilets


    Is it possible to get paper towels in the toilets again? I know that they were taken away because people were blocking the toilets, but the toilets are still blocked without them. The air-dryers don't work properly and have been shown to increase the spread of bacteria/germs etc - it'd would be great if we had paper towels to help us maintain high standards of hygiene.

  • Science Library Cafe Noise Reduction

    Could you please close the sliding glass doors that lead to the Science Cafe from the Science Library? There's already enough noise from the students in the library without needing the additional noise from the cafe.

    Thank you.
