Student input wanted for library renovation planning on March 20

On Monday, March 20, at 4:30-5:30pm, the library will host a meeting with an architectural consulting firm to work on a program statement for the library renovation. While the library has some student survey data, we do want students to have the opportunity to tell consultants about study space needs and what should be part of a renovated library. Students at all stages of their academic career are welcome!

Bring you ideas and be part of the plan. RSVP required to Emily Glenn (emily.glenn@unmc.edu).

Requesting Feedback on Study Room Reservations

The McGoogan Library of Medicine is recruiting participants in order to understand their experience with the D!BS, the Study Room Reservation System.  

We are interested in: assessing users’ experience with the D!Bs system, including satisfaction, what users like about the system and likelihood of recommending the system to others. We estimate that the survey will take about 10-15 minutes. All data collected will be kept in a secure location. We do not anticipate any risks to you in this study. You may withdraw from participation in this research study at any time. 

 We appreciate your time and consideration to participate in this research.  Please feel free to contact Alissa Fial (alissa.fial@unmc.edu) with any questions.

Support websites currently unavailable

Due to a nationwide outage of Amazon Web Services, many of the library’s support websites are inaccessible. These sites include Research Guides and study room reservations. Though unknown, some publishers may host on AWS and may be unavailable. It is unknown how long this outage will last.
