User Behaviour Policy
Food and drink (except bottled water) should only be consumed in the food and drink area in the Edward Boyle Library level 8. Hot food or alcoholic drinks should not be brought into any area of the Library.
Litter should be disposed of using the recycling bins.
Use group study or silent areas as appropriate.
Food and drink
A "no food" and "only bottled water" policy is appropriate to avoid mess, damage to Library resources, and offence to others.
This operates throughout the Library, except on level 8 of the Edward Boyle Library where there is a food and drink area for cold food and drink. In the Brotherton Library customers with food and drink should use Parkinson Court. In the Health Sciences Library customers with food and drink should use Worsley Cafe 7.
Silent study areas are provided and there should be no talking or other noise in these areas.
Group study areas are available for discussion and collaboration.
The need for quiet should be respected in all other areas.
Phones can be used in the phone zones but must be set to silent elsewhere.
Action will be taken against those who do not respect this policy, who will receive a caution, and ultimately a fine.
