Express computers

You asked:  I'm tired of the express computers popping up a million windows!

Irma says:  We're sorry this is happening.  We are aware of this issue but, at this time, we have been unable to find a satisfactory solution that both insures user privacy and maintains required functionality.  We will continue to investigate possible resolutions to the issue and will implement them as soon as possible. 

In the mean time any station that is displaying this behavior can be temporarily fixed by re-booting the system.

Quiet floors

You asked:  The quiet floors are not very quiet.

Irma says:  We realize this is an ongoing problem.  

The 6th floor has now been designated as "silent" with the policies:  
  • No Talking
  • Cell phones turned off
  • No headphones
Floors 7-9 are quiet floors with the policies:
  •  No group study or loud conversation
  • Cell phones turned off
  • Head phones turned down
We’ve placed new signs on these floors with these policies and will be adding additional signage.

Please contact the Check Out Desk at 4-5304 if there are problems.

Floors 2-5 remain group floors.

CD checkout

You asked:  Do the Libraries have CDs to check out?

Irma says:  We sure do!  The Schiffman Music Library has a large collection of CDs that all UNCG students, faculty and staff may check out for 3 weeks at a time.

The collection primarily supports the School of Music, Theater and Dance curriculum so you will find a great selection of classical, jazz and musical theater as well as a broad range of ethnic music.

CD's are listed in the Libraries Catalog.  (Hint: do an advanced search and limit to "sound recording" under format.)

In addition, a wide range of streaming recordings are available 24/7 from anywhere.  Check out this guide for more information.

You asked:  We'd like some "regular" cameras for checkout

Irma says:  It's true we don't have cameras but our technology checkout in Jackson and Schiffman includes camcorders that can also take still shots and iPad3s that include a camera.
