Changes Revealed

5/02/2016 11:00:00 AM Posted by Library Staff

If you’ve been in the LRC or have been on our Blog or Facebook page, you’ve probably noticed the signs saying that changes are coming to the LRC. What are these changes, you ask? We are in the process of adapting the LRC to meet our students’ needs and make it more comfortable, inviting, and user friendly for everyone.

First of all, we are dividing the LRC up into different study zones. The first floor is now a Collaborative Learning Zone. The modern library is a place for people to gather together and learn in different ways, and we hope to encourage that. This means that students may talk, work on group projects, or study together on the first floor in ways that might not have been welcome in a traditional library environment.  We will be adding reading lamps to tables, and will have charging stations so that students may plug in and charge their devices while they are using the LRC.  Classes are welcome to come, and we hope that students will be encouraged to hang out between classes.
For students who wish to have a quiet place to study free of distractions, the second floor mezzanine is now the Silent Study Zone.  Anyone needing to take a test or concentrate without the bustle of the first floor is encouraged to go to the Silent Study Zone.  Loud talking of any other actions that could disturb other students will not be tolerated here. The silent study zone will feature whiteboards and markers for students to use while working out equations or remembering formulas.  We are also working to create more comfortable seating groups, improve the lighting, and add charging stations on this floor. Our goal is to make it a more comfortable and inviting area for silent study.
Our changes are going to be a work in progress, but we hope that you’ll stop by and look at the ways we’re trying to improve the LRC for everyone. We’ll see you there!
