On the Third Floor of Atkins, which is now a Quiet Zone, you can now find some of these:
Both skeptics and supporters of self-policing in the library will soon have information about whether it's a feasible way to try to keep Quiet in the QZ.
Skeptics seem to be of the mind that 1) UNCC students are incapable of policing themselves, and 2) that it's somehow the job of library staff to make sure people keep quiet all the time, in all areas of the library. These cell citation pads are scattered in the Third Floor Quiet Zone as a way of giving license to self-police. And maybe, to add a little humor to the stress of trying to find a place to study in the run-up to final exams and research papers.
So, let me know if you use one. Or if you receive one.
