Joyner Library is pleased to announce room 1019 is now an absolute quiet room. The absolute quiet room is designed for library users wanting space free of nearly all ambient noise. In addition to the prohibition on talking or headphones, cell phones and other devices must be silenced (not just set to vibrate) upon entry. The creation of this quiet space is in response to the spring 2014 student survey. The room is open during normal library operating hours.
The third floor remains a quiet study area although cell phones, headphones, etc. are permitted. Security guards will increase patrol of the area to better enforce reduced noise levels.

This program will involve a public screening of the award-winning 2007 Polish film Katyn, which offers a dramatic recreation and exploration of the murder of over 21,000 Polish prisoners in 1940 by the Soviet secret police. The truth of what happened at Katyn was deliberately distorted by the Soviet state and others for 50 years, and weighs heavily on Russo-Polish relations to the present day. The showing of the film is timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the massacre.
“Sent Out to Serve: North Carolina Women Missionaries, 1872-1992″ will be on display March through December 2015. The exhibit was curated by Dr. Laureen Tedesco, Department of English, and Melanie Koerber, English Education Program, along with the staff of the Special Collections department.
