Suggestion Box: Noise in Hayden Library

Submitted: October 9, 2014
Regarding:  Hayden Library

Comment/Suggestion:  Classes that are being taught at classrooms within the library should keep the doors locked. Some instructors in the computer room in the first floor of Hayden talk too loud that everyone outside can hear him. It is very distracting.  This shouldn't be like that, if anyone is talking to a group of +10 students then it should be on a room where noise is isolated. It is only a matter of closing the door. You should have this as a policy.

Library Response:  Thank you for letting us know about this situation.  We understand how distracting that type of noise is, and how it could be preventing you from being able to focus.  We agree that the door to the computer room should be closed when class is in session.  We've adjusted our procedures and that will be the new policy, starting immediately.
