It is so unfair when students try to reserve study space by leaving their belongings behind. You think so and so do we. If this affects you, please ask Library staff to support you by placing warning cards on unattended stuff. If it is not moved after an hour, you will know you can sit there. Just ask us to help explain if anyone returns after this time and complains to you.
Leaving things overnight is particularly underhand. Between midnight and 08:00, staff will remove property left unattended for more than an hour to ‘lost property’ at Library Reception. If not claimed, the next morning it will be taken to Palmer Reception, the centre for all lost property in the University (open 10:00-14:00 or in exam-time Monday to Friday, 13:00-14:00 only).
For more information, see our ‘Help stop study-desk hogging’ post from when we initiated this service in exam-time 2016.
