The Curious ‘Cat: What do you wish the Library knew about your needs as a student?

Curious Cat

This week, the Curious ‘Cat asks Villanova students, “What do you wish the Library knew about your needs as a student?


man silhouettePeiyan Gong—“It’s a place to study … I’m a senior right now, so it’s been three years getting used to this place. I never think about things [that could be] new.”

Julia Nerney





Julia Nerney—“I definitely feel that they have the resources that I need, so I don’t generally feel that there’s anything lacking. I’m a neuroscience major, so I don’t necessarily know much about where I would find references for that because I know there are different subject librarians, but I don’t know if there’s one for that specific major. So that’s the only thing I can think of, but I have had a lot of success at the Library in terms of finding what I needed.”

Zach Leone


Zach Leone—“I’m a freshman … I’ve only been here a couple of days, but when I ‘ve been using my computer there’ve been times when I needed to plug in, especially if the Wi-Fi goes down having [a way to plug into] the Ethernet would be nice. Other than that, it’s pretty comfortable. I like these chairs.”


Amanda Borroughs


Amanda Borroughs—“I’m a grad student, and I went to Villanova undergrad as well. Having been through the transition as the [library’s] second floor was developed … before it was [renovated], I feel that whatever I had needed in that “before” stage, was met [in that upgrade] there’s a more comfortable area—to do work comfortably but also not feel restricted to just studying (like hanging out with friends). A definite quiet study area is necessary, but that’s about it.”

Sally Moon

Sally Moon—“The hours that the Library’s open: I think last year or a year-and-a-half ago the Library was open 24 hours near midterm season or finals season, and that really helped me. … Now I live off-campus so it’s hard to focus at home; I tend to focus a lot better in the Library. Even if the first floor were open 24 hours that would help me—probably other students, too.”

—“It’s good for quiet places to study, which it already has plenty of. I enjoy having the feeling of being alone when I’m studying, so the nooks on the third floor, things like that, I enjoy.”
