Well if you’re going to be here 24/7, you might as well have snax.
Now that the tower has wireless access, there is a lot more opportunity for students to work up there. The prospect of more people working in the tower, plus the 24 hour library during the month leading up to finals, has led to some people wondering about the ways that the library is trying to keep people safe.
There are emergency buttons in each elevator, as well. They look like this:
I have been informed by reliable sources that we now have wireless internet throughout the entire library building, bottom to top, lobby to tower.
So, NOW where are you going to do your work?
Well I work in a library now, so I can’t help but notice references to librarians, libraries, etc in my everyday life.
NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell me had not one but two library-based riffs this weekend:
And Doonesbury features an archivist and an important primary source.
a colleague shared this with me:
I wonder which ones you wish were at Atkins…
A co-worker shared this link with me. I’m sure many of you can relate.
Both skeptics and supporters of self-policing in the library will soon have information about whether it’s a feasible way to try to keep Quiet in the QZ.
Skeptics seem to be of the mind that 1) UNCC students are incapable of policing themselves, and 2) that it’s somehow the job of library staff to make sure people keep quiet all the time, in all areas of the library. These cell citation pads are scattered in the Third Floor Quiet Zone as a way of giving license to self-police. And maybe, to add a little humor to the stress of trying to find a place to study in the run-up to final exams and research papers.
So, let me know if you use one. Or if you receive one.
Well this is what many of you begged and pleaded for. It’s happening– a 24 hour library. It will be 5 days/week up until reading day, and then 24/7 for the rest of Finals.
So, what are you doing in the 24 hour library?
What are the advantages to you?
What problems are you encountering?
Please, do tell.
