We are happy to announce that based on input from our staff and feedback from our users, restricted access to Randall Library will start at 10 p.m. instead of 8 p.m. beginning with the Spring 2013 semester!
Access to the library between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. will still be restricted to UNCW students, faculty and staff only. A valid UNCW One Card ID is required of anyone in the building after 10 p.m.
This change in policy positions us to better support visitors who choose to attend our cultural activities and other evening events; Cape Fear Community College students; and distance education students from our sister UNC schools who often collaborate in groups with UNCW students, while still sending a message that we are serious about maintaining security of the library.
In preparation for this change, we have coordinated the security guard presence in the building and have, this past semester, created and filled the position of Evening and Weekend Supervisor which will allow us to systematically and creatively approach assessment of our evening usage.
