Ask Miss Meriam

Want to know how students feel about what goes on in the Meriam Library? Nicole Williams talked to Carolyn Dusenbury, the Dean of the Library, and to a number of students to get their take on student conduct in the library. The results of her investigation are published in the 2/06/08 issue of the Orion.

What sorts of experiences have you had in the library? Do you think it is a good place to study? Do you have any suggestions for improvements? Please leave your comments. We would love to hear from you.
