Quiet study during revision and exams

Please be considerate to your fellow students during the revision period by keeping noise to a minimum on all levels of the Library.

Quiet study space is very popular at this time of year. We have made it easier for you to find and use individual study spaces when you need them in the Library by removing the need to book. This decision is supported by data from the bookings system which shows that these types of study spaces are rarely booked.

This means that more than 1,000 individual study spaces, with and without PCs, across all floors of the Library will now be available for drop-in use.

We know our bookable individual and group work rooms are in high demand so these are still bookable. You can book these spaces in advance through Libcal. Individual study spaces in open areas in other buildings also remain available to book.

You might also have spotted that new water fountains have recently been installed near the lifts on Level 2 and Level 3 of the Library.

To find out more about bookable (and non-bookable) spaces, both on and off campus, go to: Where you can study on campus and in the city.

The University recommends face coverings are worn when moving around indoors and in teaching settings. More guidance from the University on how to Be safe on campus and in Bath is available online.

Using e-books during the assessment period? Please remember to sign out or close your browser when finished, otherwise you might lock access for other readers if there are limits on how many can access the e-book at the same time.

You may find the following Library resources helpful:

  1. Find Past exam papers
    Browse and access past papers via our online database.
  2. Take a break!
    Taking a break can help improve memory, increase your energy, reduces stress, improve health, plus boost your performance and creativity. Keep an eye out for our ‘Take a break’ envelopes in the Library during revision week.
  3. Managing exam stress and ‘Read Well’ themed reading lists
    We’ve created some themed reading lists of resources you might want to draw on for managing exam stress and reading for wellbeing. You’ll find a display on level 2 and can view the Skills and Wellbeing list on our Library Lists system.

Finally, our colleagues at the Skills Centre have a great deal of support on offer via the Support for exams web page. This include guides, blogs, 1:1 appointments, the Be Well app and much more.

Good luck with your exams!
