Quiet Down the Learning Commons sign now

Dear Emily Alling,

We, the undersigned, are fed up with the noise levels and the non-academic environment the Learning Commons of the W.E.B. Du Bois Library at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has become. Ever since the creation of the new learning commons, students now feel the need to make the library more a social hang out than a place where students can tackle their academic endeavors in peace and quiet. With the addition of the areas for group work, the library is now louder than ever. Students now have to confront other students for being too loud which during high stress times like finals and mid-terms week, can be something that isn't necessary and should not happen in the library.

What we are asking for is a change of tone from the library staff concerning the noise levels and the behavior of students in the learning commons area. The LC being a quieter area can only benefit students. This university is pushing a "students first" agenda. We hope that you and your staff feel the same way.
