THIS PETITION IS FOR QUICK AND DRASTIC CHANGES TO THE LIBRARY OPENING TIMES - ITS AN IMPERATIVE NEED FOR SO MANY IF NOT ALL OF THE STUDENTS AT ABERTAY THAT THE LIBRARY IS OPEN FOR LONGER. The Abertay Bernard King Library has been open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday this term so far. On a personal level, as a student and as a 4th year class representative - all I have heard is complaints about the library opening times. From parents who can only study in the evenings and weekends; students who HAVE to work 9-5 jobs and need access to the library in the evenings; students who don’t have desktop computers or the right kind of facilities at home to study; students (like myself) writing dissertations alongside ample amounts of coursework who need access to many many books; and not to mention students who feel a massive improvement on their studies in a more direct environment for studying (instead of at home). The Dundee university library opens until 2am. I have had to sneak in with other people’s barcodes to use the library facilities at Dundee because Abertay has been such a let down. On the student voice forum meetings with other class representatives - almost every student had something to say about the library opening times. I don’t even know why I’m having to make this petition. Lecturers have complained and are on side with the students, as to how much of a immense impact this is having on many of their students. Even with the pandemic, the library has it under control with all of the necessary measures of social distancing and the lot. So I don’t know why the library can’t be open from 6pm to even midnight (like before). For myself, I have noticed such a massive impact on my studies and the ways in which I work productively, using proper books and really getting into the learning ‘zone’ being in the library. If you feel the same or even if you aren’t a student and believe this needs dramatic change please please sign this petition. AGAIN - THIS PETITION IS FOR QUICK AND DRASTIC CHANGES TO THE LIBRARY OPENING TIMES - ITS AN IMPERATIVE NEED FOR SO MANY IF NOT ALL OF THE STUDENTS AT ABERTAY THAT THE LIBRARY IS OPEN FOR LONGER.
