Quiet Areas — Curious about all those new signs around the building? Or maybe you’ve been frustrated by trying to find a quiet corner in the library for your work. Well, we have an answer for that. At the start of the term, Hannon Library introduced designated Quiet and Community Areas. Learn more about them in this issue.
