Issue of loud announcements in the library lifts

Regarding the Library and the numerous complaints received by the Education Officer about loud announcements in the library lifts...

Dear Brian

Further to our recent meeting, the lift engineers have already turned down announcements for each floor to the minimium setting. The engineers did what we asked for the two student lifts, but there is an outstanding request for the staff lift sounders to be turned down further to match the other two.

Apparently the sound has to be at a reasonably high level to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) regulations.

People's views on the Library

Part of our job on the ARC is to monitor people's experiences of and attitudes to the library and to bring any major issues raised to the university's attention. If you have any comments about the library or suggestions for improvement, please leave a comment here (you're free to do so anonymously if you want). Sadly we can't work miracles like solving problems of space etc. but it's still worth letting us know about any problems you encounter.

Academic Representation Committee

The ARC is here to deal with academic issues on behalf of Warwick University students. The ARC takes issues raised from SSLC meetings, as well as from students through their representatives, to campaign for such things as improving the personal tutoring system and library.

However, the committee not only discusses issues raised at individual SSLC meetings, but is also responsible for coordinating the Students´ Union's academic strategy. The Faculty Reps, Education Officer, President, and lay members all come together to concert with each other on the most effective way of implementing each others' plans for improving the academic life for students at the University.

The aim of this blog is to encourage students to post comments on issues they want raised and to inform the student population of what the ARC is doing.
