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

  • 24/7 pg room

    radical, but for your consideration

    if we can't get a 24 hour library, why not make the reid PG room 24/7 for postgrads who need to work over the break?

    you could achieve this by allowing card access through the fire stairwell on the east side of the building, and locking the doors to the other floors.

  • The new grey chairs look like swastikas

    Your name: 

    The new grey chairs look like swastikas - please change them

  • 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
