                                                                        End of Exam-Mode:

                                                                        RCSI Library would love to hear any feedback you have in regards to what you thought worked or what we could do differently next time. Please email library@rcsi.ie or pop by the info point on level 1 with any comments.

                                                                        Please be aware that some of your fellow students still have exams timetabled and we ask that you continue to be respectful of others while in the shared library spaces ❤❤

                                                                        This pilot has now ended so if you have any comments or thoughts on the process please get in touch. Send all feedback to library@rcsi.ie. Thanks!
