When I used Iliad the PDF disappeared after viewing once… Was very frustrating, that glitch should be fixed. I also think there should be writing assistance in the library, ready to help and students with special wiring skills available from time to time with appointment.

The library should open earlier on the weekends. For those of us that are early birds it is extremely inconvenient to have to wait until 10AM to use the library.
Never work in there because it gets way too loud even with music playing
I think it would be useful that all of the web browsers in the library are updated to the most recent versions. It helps with browsing speed a lot. I also think it would be useful to have the Mac operating systems updated in the digital lab, again to speed up the computer start times […]
