Wifi Coverage in the WAC Bennett Library

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I was at the Bennett Library today, and unfortunately, the wifi signal was very poor on the 3rd floor and I was unable to connect. I spoke to a staff and learned that some areas of the library do not have
usuable wifi signal. I think this is crucial information that is not readily available to the visitors. It would be great if the library can create a map of wifi signal strength, clearly marking the dead zones.

Access to Online Texts for Non-Students

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I have invested in $35 charge for 4 month access to SFU library materials.  Several of the books recommended in history class are not available in hard book form, which I could sign out to read anywhere, but are available only as "full text online", which I can't access with my current library status.  I can appreciate the library is shifting more and more to digital access which is likely cheaper and provides more variety. But I feel that over time this disadvantages subscribers like me.
