Do you have your fall housing lined up yet? Consider a sleeping pod in the new mixed use SLIS Library development, SLOOGLE (SLIS Library Out of the bOx Great Living Environment). All units will retain access to the comfy furniture by the lake windows. Outlet spots on the west side will also remain a “Commons” area, but with a new reservation system. The microforms area will be taken over by Food Fight and while details of the new restaurant are still in the planning stages, the agreement does require 24/7 availability of good coffee. More retail and office space will also become available as we reduce the collection. Besant voiced some concerns but has been voted off the island.
Suggestions? More interested in distance services? Contact the SLOOGLE Team.
Seriously now, SLIS students are not around as much as has been true in the past. As we think about space use and services going forward, what would be helpful for you? Please email mbesant at library.wisc.edu if you’d like to be part of a planning effort.
