Concordia Libraries have designated study zones to accommodate student needs for silent study and for quiet group and individual study. In the Webster and Vanier libraries, look for signs designating Blue Zones and Orange Zones, and choose the area that works best for you.
Concordia Libraries welcomes feedback about the zones from students and faculty (and retired faculty) at: http://libsuggestions.wordpress.com/
