Quiet Study on Steely's 4th Floor; Collaborative Study on Steely's 3rd Floor
In response to frequent requests for more quiet study space, and to utilize existing library furniture and equipment more efficiently, Steely's 4th floor is now identified as an area for 'Quiet Study.'
We encourage groups looking for space to work collaboratively to visit our 3rd floor, identified as Steely's 'Collaborative Study' area. In addition to group tables near the front of the floor and in the loggia, we have group tables concentrated near the back of the 3rd floor, as well.
We also encourage groups wishing to work collaboratively to reserve and use our Private Group Study Rooms, designed to accommodate groups and the various needs they may have in their studies: http://nku.libcal.com/booking/groupstudyrooms
We have moved furniture to reflect these changes, and will post signage to help library users locate the type of space they need.
As before, the 1st and 2nd floors remain as designated 'Quiet Study' areas.
If you are having issues with noise levels in Quiet Study areas, please feel free to visit our Public Services Desk and ask for help.
