Silent Study Zones/Total Silence Zones

The library is a great place to do some collaborative work with your friends and fellow students. We have group study areas in both campuses, and the librarians are happy to point them out to you.

However, there are also some Silent Study Zones and Total Silence Zones on the top floor of both libraries, and we ask all of our visitors to respect the fact that the people using those areas need a quiet environment to do their work.

In these areas, we ask you to make sure you do not have anything that might cause a distracting noise (MP3 players, mobile phones, laptop keyboards, children) and to avoid conversation.

If you are on the top floor of one of the JCU campus libraries, can you please make sure you keep an eye out for the "Silent Study Zone" and "Total Silence Zone" signs? It would also be great if you could remember to talk softly whenever you are moving between the group study areas. It's easy to forget how well noise travels in the open spaces.
