Quiet Study Spaces in the Library

The Golisano Library recognizes the need to ensure that our Library users have an appropriate study space.  Beginning this fall semester, the Library team has been enforcing the Library's Atmosphere & Building Use Guidelines, developed in 2017. Recognizing that there are different expectations of acceptable noise, we have designated Library spaces for three levels of noise:
 
     Quiet Study - no conversation (2nd floor, except for Group Study Rooms & Curriculum Center)
     Considerate Study - low volume conversation (all other areas)
     Conversational Study - respectful volume of conversation (Study Cafe only)
 
This approach, along with hourly monitoring by the Library team, has greatly reduced the noise level and encouraged more students to use the Library for studying. Please be respectful of these guidelines as we approach midterms.
