You talk, we listen

April 30th, 2014 by Sarah Laleman Ward

We’ve received a LOT of feedback about the new floor designations. Thanks for noticing and for taking the time to let us know what you think.

Suggestion Box

Suggest something!

A great deal of thought was put into the reshuffling – library faculty and staff met and discussed at length the best course of action. So while we appreciate your suggestions and will take them under advisement, we’re going to try things out like this for a little while. If over time we feel it’s not working, we’ll revisit the designations and make changes as needed.

Keep talking to us – we’re listening.
