Barr Smith Library Levels 1 and 2, including the Barr Smith Reading Room, are designated as quiet study areas.
This means that while users can have quiet brief discussion, prolonged and/or loud discussions that disturb other users’ ability to study are not. Users who are disturbing others will be asked to quieten down or move out of the area.
Level 3 North is designated as a quiet collaborative area where quiet discussion is permitted
We recommend Hub Central as the place to go if you want get together for more animated discussions over a coffee or lunch.
In all Library areas mobile phones must be on silent for incoming calls or turned off. Quiet, brief phone conversations or text messaging is OK; otherwise users should use their phones in the Barr Smith stairwells or Hub Central.
Note that no area of the Barr Smith Library is designated as a silent area.
If you are being disturbed by other library users, please report this to a library staff member or phone 8313 5759.
