Computer cleanliness

You said:  Please clean the computers more often.

Yes, we plan to do a better job with this!  Because the computers are heavily used it's hard to get to them to clean. But we'll schedule times to clean when we're less busy.

Quiet Study Areas

You said:  I have trouble finding a quiet place to study in Jackson Library

Floors 6-9 in Jackson Library are quiet areas. We have put new furniture on 7,8 & 9 this year. See some examples here!

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 chat with a staff member or call (336-334-5304) or report it to the Check Out Desk on the 1st floor.

Study Rooms with Big Screens

You asked:  What happened to the private rooms with the big screens?  We miss them!

We're so glad you find these rooms useful!  There are still several rooms with large screens throughout Jackson Library.  This web page provides information about all of them.

The ones with large screens are included in "Jackson Tower, Large Group Spaces," "Jackson Tower, Medium Group Spaces" and "Jackson Lower Level -- DMC Medium Group Spaces."

When you click through the reservation form you'll find which ones have screens.
