Choose your Mabo Library study space

In 2012 the library undertook a university-wide survey in regard to library products and services.
Two survey findings were students wanted more silent spaces to study in, and more group study space. In response, the Townsville Mabo Library has made the following changes to the library layout:
  • The ground floor is the collaboration floor – for group work. The floor is fitted out with computers, power and wireless available for laptop use, group discussion tables, and whiteboards.
  • The ground floor iLearning rooms – are available for group study when classes aren’t in session.
  • The first floor is for quiet study – for group work and individual study. The floor is fitted out with computers, wireless and power for laptop use, and has a mix of group study tables and individual spaces.
  • The second floor is for silent and individual study. The desks are designed for individual use. The protocol for this level is that conversations should be study related, and conducted in whispered voices.
Ask InfoHelp staff on the ground floor for advice on the best area for group discussion, silent study, or individual space.
