Hello, my name is Rob and I am a Service Advisor down at the Bay Library. I’m going to tell you about the study space available for you here in the library.
We are open 24 hours a day, so you can come in at any time. If you are an early riser and want to study at 5.30 in the morning you can. Similarly, if you are a nocturnal creature you could come in at midnight and study until dawn. The choice is yours!
Choice is important to us here in The Bay Library – we want you to use the library in a way that suits you. We have a range of study spaces available – whether you are part of a study group or you prefer the solace of your own company, we should have a place to suit you. If the central area gets a bit too lively, we have more peaceful silent study rooms in the North Wing. We also have a bookable pod (a small enclosed space with separate lighting and air conditioning controls!) for group work. It looks a bit like it might take off and shoot into orbit. If you are an engineering student, you are welcome to try and make that happen, but only if I can have a go in your flight simulator! (Disclaimer: This is a joke! Please don’t attach rockets to anything in the library.)
We have two open access PC rooms in the library, as well as extra PCs in the central area which we installed recently to help meet demand. Screens are touchscreen enabled, and are all connected to our scanner/printers. You can also bring your own laptop or device into the library. We have lots of power sockets available round the Bay Library, so you should always be able to find a plug or a USB point when you need one!
If you are having trouble with your computer or your tablet we can help you with any basic IT enquiry. We also provide information sheets to help you connect to the internet, login to our systems and help you use our printing facilities.
You can ask us ANY question and we will do our very best to help you.
Remember, always bring your student card with you or you may not have access to all of our services!
