Revision time

It's exam time for year 2 students, so the library is currently being used for quiet revision. Please be mindful that some students are unable to study at home and find noise very distracting whilst revising in the library. Please keep your conversations to a minimum and do any socialising outside of the library. Thanks for your cooperation!
