Qatar Library


Room Reservations

The Library Commons is used by different groups for different purposes – some studying individually and some working in groups. While it is not a completely quiet area, we ask that you respect others by not making noise or talking loudly. If you need complete quiet, we recommend booking one of our Study Rooms or checking out a pair of noise cancelling headphones.

Should you believe others in the Library Commons are being excessively noisy or disruptive then in the first instance please approach and discuss the issue with the other party or parties. If you have already asked someone to be quiet and they continue to be disruptive then this may be a violation of the Student Conduct Code (Section on Disruptive Activity). In such cases you can file a Campus Community Incident Report. If you would like help with this process please ask Library staff for their assistance.
