The learning commons survey is running until Friday, October 19. We want to hear from the university community about technologies, services, and spaces that students, faculty, and staff would like us to consider when developing the learning commons, a space that will be redesigned to enhance learning and research.
The brief survey asks questions about your preferences for an ideal learning and research environment. Please fill out the survey through MyUNIverse or through this direct link. (CatID login is required.)
Beginning Tuesday, October 16, the Library's light fixtures on the first, second, and third floors will receive an upgrade.
As of July 14, 2012, the Department of Energy mandated the production of T12 lamps (bulbs) will be phased out. The fixtures on the first three floors of the building use T12 lamps. The project beginning Tuesday will replace the ballasts, bulbs, and light covers for all T12 fixtures in the building and replace them with T8 components. At the end of the project the Library's lighting will be more consistent through the building and slightly brighter.
In order for this work to take place banks of lights will be turned off for periods of time during the day hours. Your favorite study location may have dim lighting at some point. Please see the friendly folks at the Circulation Desk if you need assistance locating a different location to study.
Join us at the library to watch the Presidential Debate this Tuesday, October 16th from 8-10 pm. We'll stream them live at the library! Go to the open area behind the reference desk on the main floor. Look for the signs! Bring a friend or two!
