Why are there so few closed carrels? Why are there so many that seem free, but I’m so far down the wait list it looks like I won’t even get one before I get my degree? At the end of the semester will I suddenly get bumped up a few notches? [3355C]
Our Circulation Dept. manages the carrel reservations, so you should check with them regarding your placement on the waiting list. Yes, you should move up as others move on in life. If there are carrels that seem free, it must be that whoever has them keeps them empty. During renovations, there will be a lower number of grad student and faculty closed study carrels since some of that space is needed for library staff left without offices. This should be remedied within a couple of years.
