We are listening to you!  The following library improvements were made, based on the LibSat survey results for fall 2009:

Resolved the printing problems at the S.E. Wimberly Library Reference Department area.

Purchased additional laptops for students to check out to meet the ever increasing demand for laptop usage. 

Replaced old furniture in the S.E. Wimberly Library lobby and added 32 new high quality casual lounge seating with footstools, and 5 tables.  In addition, the lobby was re-carpeted, the surrounding walls were redone, and a high-quality display case showcasing the Chodorkoff collection of glass and fiber was added. 

Redesigned the FAU Libraries home page with the integration of the SearchWiSE search box.  We have also added links to other access points to better enable users to search independently.  Many resources are now ‘up front’ on the library’s home page.

Jupiter Library has extended evening hours from 9 PM to 11 PM, Sunday through Thursday, during the semester.

The Dean of University Libraries, Dr. William Miller, has met with the Campus Facilities Committee and University architects in an effort to draw attention to the fact that we need some refurbishments in the S.E. Wimberly Library.

Some library users on the Davie campus told us that they wanted more security visibility inside and outside of the library.  There is now an FAU police presence on the Davie campus.

Reviewed the signage in the quiet study areas of the S.E. Wimberly Library.  Additional signs were implemented to indicate quiet areas to assist users and library staff in identifying and maintaining quiet and discussion areas.

S.E. Wimberly Library and IRM are working collaboratively to improve IT services to students.  The library provides information updates about the availability of help services in the Library’s computer laboratory on the second floor.
