What would you call us?

Approximately two years ago, the Jessup Library went through renovation. The yellowing green carpet was replaced and the orange duct work was painted a lovely, soothing gray. Ramshackle, mismatched tables were replaced with space-efficient and matching computer carrels. We changed out the orange shelves and the old chairs. All-in-all, it was a lengthy but rewarding process. We all hope you are enjoying the updated surroundings, but if you ever wondered what it looked like before, here are some pictures to remind you.

And although we renovated two years ago, there are many things still left to do. One item that remains on our to-do list is signage. We would like to put up signs that will help you; we also want those signs, and the language used, to be user-friendly.

If you had an opportunity to decide, what would you call certain areas in the library? What would YOU call the reference desk? We'll use your input to help us decide in the near future!
