But these two pictures are from Dominican University, where I am working on my Ph.D. This is the greeting when you enter the library, and notice its in red and printed on legal paper…

Hi Tony –
Do you disagree with the signage or think its a good idea?
Bella Karr Gerlich, PhD
Thanks for the comment Bella. I do think the language is a little strong. NFZ stands for no fly zone and has strong military connotations.
Thanks Tony. I’ll poll the staff and some others regarding the acronym – you are the first person that I heard make that particular observation.
We have had a lot of spills, garbage piling up and complaints regarding food in the library recently, and I appreciate your opinion about the language but don’t feel that the message is inappropriate – our experience is that ‘please don’t eat in the library’ doesn’t get noticed as much as a sandwich with a circle and a line drawn through it – short and to the point.
Thanks again for sharing your opinions – your comments are always welcome!
Thanks Bella! I hope that you have a wonderful break, and I’m sure that we will bump into each other next term.
