(Nov 26/09) I am so disappointed with the study spaces available in Mills. I am tired of sitting on the floor because all the seats in the quiet areas are taken and those that available dont have plugs for the computer. I noticed there is a wireless sign on the 5th floor, there is no internet up there! Also can you please tell me why the previous study space on the 4th floor has now been replaced by empty bookshelves and the study space moved by the elevator? How is anyone suppose to study considering the noise level there? The library needs more actual quiet study areas, not group study tables, but areas that are quiet and provide plugs for computers.

Library response:

Thanks for your comments. As you have seen we are in the process of renovating many of our spaces which has resulted in a temporary reduction in many of the different types of study spaces our users are seeking. We are committed to finding the correct balance between group, quiet and silent study spaces, but we are not there yet.

We are looking into the problem of intermittant wirelss access on the 5th floor. Many of our wireless problems are due to the high number of users in our library every day, which is why we are working on the transformation of our spaces. We will work with UTS to see what the problem on the 5th floor might be.
