(Feb 10/08) I love the renovated Health Sciences library! Especially the History of Medicine Room. Im a humanities student, and clearly have nothing to do in this library, but it is far nicer and far more aesthetically pleasing than Mills. Further, unlike Mills Library, it is actually Quiet!! I gladly go out of my way to study at Health Sciences library. It is ironic that this library has the decor appropriate for the Arts library, and that the Arts library has the sterile environment suited for the science library.
Library response: Thanks for your comments! We are very happy with the aesthetics of our renovated space and pleased that you (and many, many others) choose to study here.One of the really nice things about the renovation is that it has provided us with spaces for group consultation and spaces for individual, quiet study. You can't always please everybody, but this design satisfies a great many of our patrons! (Feb 11/08)
