Balancing books and bodies

Bass Library is quiet this morning, but during peak studying times, it’s hard to find a seat there—a problem the library is trying to fix by adding more study space. The library said in January that it would add 105 seats to the existing 365 by reducing the number of books from 104,000 individual titles to 40,000. After criticism of the plan by students and faculty, the library announced a compromise yesterday: 61,000 volumes would remain in Bass, and 84 new seats would be created.
