Great suggestions. We will take a look at them and see if we can come up with something workable.
In the meantime, did you know it is possible to book study rooms for group work (minimum 3 occupants)? There are six group study rooms on the 3rd floor of Mills and three group study rooms on the 4th floor which can be booked online @ http://library.mcmaster.ca/mrbs/. We are about to install a screen to show when rooms are booked (or on the other hand when they are available for use) in the group study room areas on these floors. We hope this will help everyone know when rooms are available.
