Open UTRGV Med Library study rooms for all

This petition had 76 supporters

In recent years we have seen our university undergo a growth. More students are enrolling each fall semester and less are withdrawing from their academics. With this growth of size, it is necessary to be able to facilitate the distribution of campus amenities. Specifically, in this case, the library. While the number of students increases, unfortunately, we cannot say the same over the number of facilities the university is able to provide access to. The medical library is one of UTRGV's most recent additions, and it is most likely the least utilized addition. The Myles and Sylvia Aaronson Library Edinburg Medical Education Building is open to individuals during normal operating hours, however, the study rooms can only be used by the Med students. Imposing such restrictions on an essential university amenity is not only unjust but illogical. Come the time when finals approach, the main library will be filled to its fullest capacity; and I am sure that many of my fellow colleagues can agree that reserving a study room, not just during finals week, can be a frustration on its own. This petition serves as a basis for unification in order to achieve a compromise with the university regarding access to the Medical Library study rooms.
