Some recent suggestions/comments from the library suggestion box:

Increase water pressure please. Water fountains.
We called in the campus Facilities Management plumbers and had the pressure increased. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

I notice that you carry the SF Chronicle and wonder why you don’t also have the Contra Costa Times?
With the worsening of the California state budget, we anticipate that we will be compelled to cancel many of our subscriptions to print newspapers within the next year. Use the computer terminals throughout the library to read the web edition of your favorite newspaper online. Ask for assistance at any service desk.

Shelve the music section promptly! It is a mess!

The Arts Library has seen a surge in use of our print collections which is good news, but it has made it more difficult for us to keep the stacks in good order. We recently hired additional student assistants to focus on maintaining and reshelving materials in both the music and art book collections. We also are planning for a complete shelf reading (to make sure books are in the correct order) and cleaning of the collections this summer.
