Q. What is the policy for a noise violation? Will I be fined for talking or using my phone? Can I set my phone to silent?
Silence shall be observed in the Library except in designated talking areas (e.g. TOK Space at Laucala/level A for quiet discussion). Any person who fails to observe the rules on noise control in the Library will be fined on the first two occasions by the authority of the University Librarian, at the rate stated in the Fees section here: http://www.usp.ac.fj/fileadmin/files/services/library/Working_in_libraries/General/RulesRegulations_updated.docx. Borrowing privileges shall cease until the fine has been paid. On a third occasion, a thirty-day period of exclusion from the Library shall be imposed. Phones can be set to silent and used while in the library- but no talking on the phone.
