McIntyre Library News
Can you do a survey to ban facebook usage in the library? It is frustrating trying to find a computer to use for school work when several people are on facebook looking at pictures, poking people, or just killing time. The library computers should be used for homework, not facebook.
I agree with the facebook comment-there is a certain time and place for that-not in the library. Dealing with the cell phone usage, once the silent floors are chosen they should also not allow cellphones. If you need to use them, take it to the lobby.
I am a regular in the library and of 5th floor. As far as cell phone usage goes, there should not be a ban or restriction anywhere. On fifth when any of us gets a cell phone call we go and talk in the areas between the book shelves. As long as you use a reasonable voice, you CAN NOT hear anyone talking on their cell, thus the areas where people are studying are still kept quiet. Often times I get calls from friends asking me quetions relating to school work. I don't want to have to go down all the way to the lobby or some other area for a 2 min. conversation. If you want to encourage people of places to talk that wouldn't distract people fine, but no ban
I also agree about facebook. It is complteley ridiculous that students that need to use the computers for school work or research can not find one when there are a dozen people on face book or catching up on a tv show they missed, that should be saved for the weekends when the demand for computers is less, also cell phone usage is very distracting when you are trying to concentrate, if it's an important call go to the stair well or lobby, otherwise please just shut up and get off face book it's not that important.
I agree with there should not be a cell phone ban. Many people respect others privacy and move the convos into the book shelf areas and are not distracting. If someone is too loud, just ask them to keep it down. most people are understanding. especially if you are on the quiet floor.
Get a life! Not all of us are library geeks. Don't ban facebook or cell phone!!!
