    What do you like about the library?

  • Thanks to everyone who responded to our library survey. There were a total of 476 responses, 424 from students. This represents over 25% of our student population. This is a huge response rate!

    Most people preferred to use the Library on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoons. You also said that you wanted the Library to be open on both Saturday and Sunday. We heard what you had to say, and changed our hours for the Spring semester. We'll be open both Saturday and Sunday 1pm - 5pm.

    Re(ady)Made presents the work of artists who alter existing books to produce new publications. Considering that books are made up of form and content that interplay to generate ideas, it is difficult to draw a defining line that differentiates whether the artists made changes solely to either the form or the content. There are, however, many artists who have taken the extreme to either side.
