Quiet Study Areas

You asked:  Where are the quiet study areas in Jackson Library?

Floors 6-9 in Jackson Library are quiet areas. The 6th floor (pictured here) features numerous private desks with power. We will be refurnishing 7,8 and 9 over the course of the year.

And, you can reserve a small study room (also pictured) on floors 2, 5, 6 and 7 for up to two hours at a time. On this web page they are the "small study rooms w/ PCs" and the "small study rooms w/o PCs.

If there is too much noise on a quiet floor you may text or IM a staff member or report it to the Check Out Desk on the 1st floor

Whiteboard tables

You asked: Can we get whiteboard tables that we can write on?  They are really convenient.

We are planning to experiment with different types of furniture this year and we can certainly try these!

In the meantime check out our new group study areas on Tower 2, 3 and 4 with lots of whiteboard space. And we bought many new rolling white boards that are on all the floors in Jackson and Schiffman

Online renewal of technology

You asked:  Can we have online renewals for technology?

Because of the high demand for laptops, calculators, GoPros
and other technology we ask for in-person renewal.  Often there are students waiting for these items to become available and we want to be sure that everyone who needs one is able to check one out.

Online renewal is available for many other items including most books and some Audio-Visual Materials.  More information on how to renew online, including video tutorials, is here.
