Survey for students: What do you want in library study/research space?

The Milton S. Eisenhower is now 50 years old. It remains one of the most utilized buildings on campus and serves as a traditional complement to the more modern 21st century Brody Learning Commons. The folks at Hopkins libraries are gathering information about what you want and need relating to MSE as a study space and research space in anticipation of a future library renovation project. Your responses to the survey linked below will help us better understand how you use MSE currently and how you would like to use the space in the future.

Fill out the Study Spaces and Research Spaces Survey Link here.

The survey will be open until Friday, April 17th.

On Wednesday, April 22, one respondent will be chosen at random to receive an iPad mini.
