ON-CAMPUS Corner A major concern for students who responded to our Library Quality Survey was that there are not enough available designated quiet study spaces. In response, we have added more quiet study carrels in the West wing of the library, which previously held the Government Documents collection (now relocated to the periodicals shelves).


Update: LOOK INSIDE Reading E-Books in the LRC’s collection is easier than ever before. Just click Look Inside when you find an E-Book in the LRC Catalogue.
