Additional study space open in Vet Med Library

VetMed News - Thu, 2013-01-10 11:37

The Vet Med Library has made more space for quiet study. The southeast corner of the Library between the A105 Group Study Room and the banquette seating along the south patio entrance wall is now an open seating space. The book shelving has been removed and the books formerly in that section have been consolidated with the other book stacks remaining. The reference books are now located on the south side of A105 Group Study. Sadly, there are no power outlets in this area to plug into–so be sure that your laptop or device is charged if you plan to study for long hours. We welcome your feedback about the setup and feel free to move around the furniture in that area. Happy Reading!
