Question 8: Music at the Library
How do you feel about music in the "cafe corner?"
|Any Music is disruptive.||132||28%|
|Occasional live music is fine.||34||7%|
|Low background music is fine.||179||38%|
|A mix of occasional live music and low background music would be great.||121||26%|
- Music would be pretty cool as long as it's soft and mellow (maybe classical/jazz)? Everyone has different "study music" preferences; however; so it could be hard to choose a good genre that works for all.
- I feel that music on that floor may be loud enough to disrupt others who wish to study nearby. People may go to other areas of campus to eat and socialize in such an atmosphere; but I feel that the library should be kept quiet so that people may study or work.
- The cafe corner is a study area; not a coffee shop. It will become to loud if music is playing
- That's what the UU is for. Bring an iPod if you want music it's a library!
- If people want to listen to music they'll listen to their ipods.
- Low background music can be controlled; live music cannot therefore it wouldnt be adviseable. As acoustic instruments do certainly have a thereshold before they can be controlled at a volume.
- Would add some mood to the place
- Something jazzy or instrumental?
- no live music.
- but seriously low
- Not sure how live music would work.
- its too loud there already
- Entire "cafe corner" is disruptive
- NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. Terrible idea. The cafe is a mix between the loud 24 hr room and the quiet floors; it's perfect as it stands.
- live music would be really distracting
- the backgrouond music should be very quiet
- Live music would be a major mistake.....it is a library. Live music would end up disrupting other floors. Please; please; please don't do this. Don't sell out to campus dining
- i don't think live music is appropriate...granted there's a cafe but it's still a library...keep it close to quiet
- Live music wouldn't be recommended. Mainly because this infers loud music.
- It is in fact a library. With people studying and talking is fine because it adds to the environment. If we add live music (or loud radio music) than it takes away the focus from studying.
- so long as the live music isn't loud; so that it's not intrusive for people farther away.
- Live would carry up the stairwell
- Once a month max Friday or Saturday evening in my opinion. Also the second story is to get away from the noisy 24-hour study room; so background music would be way too disruptive.
- that would be cool
- if the music is low-key
- I think the occasional music would be fine; but everyday would be overkill.
- live music could be distracting to the learning commons
- This is a library not a concert hall
- tough call but once you open the door you can't get it shut.
- if it is scheduled and people are told about it ahead of time; so that there is no complaining
- cafe corner? i need to get out more
- it is a library afterall.
- It is loud with voices anyway; music would be better
- I think a live band at any time would be too distracting.
- If we wanted a noisier environment we could study at the UU; here it should be mellow and quiet.
- Not sure if live music would carry to other floors?
- Since it's only one corner of a floor; I don't feel like it'd be a problem.
- Live music would be distrating
- It's a library
- live music is good
- That space is used too often for group meetups. People who want music are likely to have headphones. There are other places on campus where people can go for study and music
- loud music means I can't study well but light music is alright
- This depends on how far the music would travel and if it would disrupt the rest of the second floor.
- Very Low classical music that people can listen to or put on their own headphones and tune out. Nothing very disrupting and no live music.
- Live music would seem to be enevidably loud.
- music is often distracting and defeats the purpose of going to the library for a quiet place to study
- no live music; there wouldn't be anyone willing to play that is good
- They should have sound proof walls around that thing! The blenders are So annoying. But I like that that corner is chill and you can talk and collaborate there.
- I haven't experienced the live bands yet
- This is a library that we're talking about; right? There should NEVER be any live music that could disrupt people who are trying to work and meet their deadlines.
- How would you make sure it was "good" music? There's nothing worse than having to listen to music you hate.
- The library is a great place to study. Having music would just be a disruption. Having the cafe is enough of a luxury and music would just e overboard.
- No Live Music! Volume control is essential
- it would be too difficult to cater to everyone's music tastes; and displeasing music can be an annoying disruption
