The ERC Has Changed!

Hello Raiders!

We can’t wait to see you back and in action here at Riv! The summer has been very busy with back of the house projects, many of which were based on feedback we received in the library survey last winter. One of these changes is a big alteration to the ERC General Collection Area and Quiet Study.

You’ll notice the room has been completely shifted, with the Juvenile Nonfiction books facing you as you walk in and the General Collection wrapping along the outer wall and into the inner stacks. If this is confusing at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to library staff to assist you!

We were also able to add two thin client PC computers to the Quiet Study area, expanding it as much as the space would allow. There are now four computers tucked safely away behind the stacks, where you can find some peace and quiet from the sometimes boisterous main room.

We truly hope that these changes will make your experience at the ERC even better than before, and offer our sincere thanks for the feedback that made it possible.

Enjoy the last days of summer everyone! See you soon!

Hello Raiders! Looking for some culture? Many of our international students hail from Hyderabad, India, where these films are particularly popular. If you are an international student looking for a taste of home, look no further than the Regina Library, where we are gathering a collection of Tollywood films for the whole campus to enjoy! The display is right when you walk into the library–come check out something good for your weekend watching.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

ERC Quiet Study Renovations

Happy Summer Raiders!

As the warm air comes to stay, things are busy at the library as we strive to make adjustments from the wonderful feedback we got back in the library survey in January. One of these changes will be a larger quiet study area for the ERC. Here’s a look at the area, in progress:

It’s not much to look at right now, but by September two more computers will be stationed here so that more students can enjoy some peace and quiet in a rather boisterous space. Keep an eye out for more changes as we approach the Fall 2015 semester!

Well, it’s the last day of finals–you’re almost there! To those who have finished, congratulations! To our graduating seniors, you’re welcome back to the library any time as alumni. :)

Have a wonderful and safe summer vacation. Remember, if you’re close by, the library will be open for business, though you might want to check our website for intersession and summer hours as they are more limited.

Pat yourself on the back, Raiders–you did it!
