Collaborative and Quiet Zones

The Galter Health Sciences Library is divided into collaborative and quiet zones. Study zones have varied noise levels and allow users to determine which areas of the library are best for the type of study environment they need. Signs are posted in all areas of the library so it should be clear to users and staff what is permitted and expected regarding noise levels.
