Suggestion:

- Is there a way for somebody to patrol the third floor for noise? I shouldn't have to change locations 3+ times, because people are talking loudly and blaring music. Also, I would love to see the library have longer hours. Thanks

Response:

We do have officers patrolling each floor once an hour not only for security reasons, but for noise too. If this happens again, please report this to the 1st floor Information Desk and they will have an officer go to the location you are reporting and take care of the situation. There should be no blaring music anywhere in this building and reported immediately.

We will have longer hours for study during finals. You can go to our Library Homepage and get the exact times.

If I can be of further assistance please contact me.

Thank you for taking time to make you suggestion.

Suggestion:

Since the signs apparently do not work as well as they should, could someone please please make regular rounds on the third floor to remind students that the third floor is a quiet floor and not for study groups. Today, Sunday, January 25 is the second time I have had to tell a group to quiet down. I do not think I should absolutely have to reserve a room for quiet especially when I enjoy using the double monitors on the quiet floor. Thank you.

Response:

We are so sorry you have been inconvenienced. We do our best to keep the 3rd floor a quiet floor. We do have Security Guards starting around 6 PM to Midnight during the week and on weekends Saturday all day and Sunday starting at 2 PM until Midnight. They do walk all floors. If however, if you do have a problem with noise, please feel free to call the Information desk, 898-3701 or 898 3702 and report the problem and one of our staff will help you.

We are exploring ways for our full time staff to walk all floors at least once an hour to curb noise on the 3rd floor or to prevent noise.

Also, you might explore the 2nd floor for the quiet space (not a study room). There are several areas students are not aware of because they are tucked away behind the stacks (south side of the floor). The areas are very quiet and have study carrels to use.

If you have any questions or concerns please call me (940 898 3746)

Thank you for informing us of this problem.

Suggestion:

I would happily spend all of my money at a coffee/tea/pastry place if there was one at the library. I would love to see something at the Library similar to The Bakers Dozen in the Student Union.

Response:

We would happily love for you to spend your money here for Coffee/Tea/Pastry if we could only convince the powers that be to let us build an area to accommodate these needs. We have been trying to do this for years. We know the need and we are working very hard to make this happen. In the meantime, we do serve coffee and snacks during finals week. We serve coffee and snack twice a night during this time period.

Thank you for taking time to let us know your thoughts and we get these comments often. Hopefully soon we will be able to have these services available.

Suggestion:

I would LOVE to see some Max Lucado books!


Response:

Thank you for your suggestion to purchase more Max Lucado books for the Library. Usually these titles are given to us by the publisher so we will add them as we receive them.

I appreciate your interest in the Library Collections.
