Using the Library: Quiet Zones

When in a Quiet Zone...

Odum Library is a hub on campus, great for studying and socializing. As such, we have different areas to accommodate both of these activities. 


To ensure that Odum Library is a welcoming place for all, please consider these actions:

  • Lowering ringtone volume or setting phone to vibrate 

  • Listening to music via headphones or earbuds 

  • Using your cell phone to take calls without enabling speakerphone  


When in a Quiet Zone, please consider these additional actions: 

  • Moving to a non-Quiet Zone to take calls or have extensive in-person conversations

  • Speaking in quiet tones when brief conversation is required


We strive to make Odum Library a welcoming environment for all. Contact us at the Circulation Desks, Reference Desks or via Live Chat to report excessive noise. 

Thank you!
