UTAH ACADEMIC LIBRARIES CONSORTIUM OPEN TEXTBOOKS STATEWIDE SURVEY
Response deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 30

Free online textbooks are emerging as an alternative to traditional print textbooks. Tell the Utah System of Higher Education what you think about textbooks. Your input will provide valuable information on a statewide pilot project about free online textbooks.

Please complete this survey by Wednesday, Nov. 30. Note that this survey is intended for students on the University of Utah MAIN CAMPUS only.

The survey can be found here.


NO VEHICLES ALLOWED ON THE MARRIOTT PLAZA

marriott-plaza
The Marriott Plaza is a roof. It is unsafe for vehicles to drive in this area as it is a highly used pedestrian plaza and vehicle traffic has the potential to harm the roof. Facilities Management is adding bollards in the area to deter vehicles. Other than food trucks, that have been given specific and safe pathways and areas to park, vehicular traffic in this area is prohibited and cart traffic is highly discouraged.

Please use caution in this densely used area and be kind and courteous to others.
