(Dec 6/11) Please ask the HSL to turn on the heaters in the reading room a bit higher during the winter. Its freezing during the winter and there are heaters which arent really used so a lot of people wear their coats.
Library response: Unfortunately, there is no separate heating system for the reading room or even for the Health Sciences Library as a whole. The heating is building-wide, the Health Sciences Centre is a very big building, and it takes a long time to adjust to major temperature changes such as happened last week. If you mean the Reading Pavilion, that area is even more challenging due to its size and the large windows. I can only suggest that on cold days you find an interior location to sit, where the view might not be as spectacular but the temperature will be warmer. (Dec 12/11)
