    Improved Operation/Availability of Study Rooms

      It has come to my attention through members of the Disabled Students' Network that there have been times where they have used the group study rooms on the Second floor of the Cadman building, and have been asked by library staff to vacate early due to being "short-staffed", which has disrupted their studies on multiple occasions. Some of my members have processing impairments, so they are very dependent on these rooms in order to focus on their studies without the distractions we encounter when sitting in the more communal sections of the library. The library staff usually have no issue leaving all of the other study rooms available 24/7, so it personally baffles me on why these two rooms require to be locked at 8pm or sooner. After enquiring further, even the staff member who asks them to vacate doesn't understand why it needs to be done either.
