Food and Drink Pilot at the University of Aberdeen Libraries

Good news! The University of Aberdeen libraries are trialling a new food and drink policy that gives you more freedom to snack as you study. The pilot will operate from Monday 19th January to Friday 22nd May, 2015. During this period:

Cold food can be consumed at study tables in designated areas in all our libraries

Hot and cold drinks in covered containers are allowed in most areas within the libraries

Please note that food and drink are not permitted in the Special Collections Centre or Gallery.

The good news is that there are now many areas within the libraries where you can eat and drink, but please respect your fellow library users and help us maintain a clean and tidy environment by:

 Cleaning up after yourself

Using the appropriate bins and cleaning equipment provided

Reporting any problems to staff on duty in person or by phone –
The Sir Duncan Rice Library: 01224 273330, Medical Library: 01224 437870, Taylor Library: 01224 272601

To maintain a pleasant study environment please observe the following restrictions:

X  No hot food anywhere in the libraries

X  No smelly or noisy cold food

X  No food in silent study areas, project rooms, and rooms or areas with equipment (PC Classrooms, PC Clusters, Co-Labs, Flexible Learning Area, Microform Room, Multimedia Room, Music Resources Room, Viewing Room)

Please disregard any ‘no food and drink’ signs in the lifts and on floor plans in The Sir Duncan Rice Library during the pilot period.
