Following student requests and consultation with SSLCs, the Library has converted its bookable workrooms from a sign-up sheet system to an online system, managed by Timetabling. This will be run as a trial throughout Semester 2 to gauge its effectiveness compared to the paper system.
There are several benefits. For example, you will be able to:
- Book rooms more than a week in advance
- Explore bookable group workrooms across the University in one system. Group Study Spaces are located in selected rooms in the Library, Chancellors’ Building, 1W, 8W, Norwood House and Workstations in 8W 1.28
- Book online rather than in person – you can explore availability online without having to visit the room in person. Bookings can also be made via a QR code on door signage, using a web enabled camera phone
The group spaces on Library Level 1 (L1.12) and Level 4 (L4.30A – tables 1 and 2) are available to groups for 2hr slots, once per day, per group, between 08:15 – 22:05, as approved manually in the system by Timetabling. Be sure to book any weekend slots before 4pm on the preceding Friday, to avoid disappointment.
