I have a concern regarding the Cabell library entrance doors. I have a problem opening the doors, either pushing or pulling, because they offer severe resistance. In fact, I either have to slam my body against them or use two hands to attempt to start opening. And it's not just opening that's the problem, but when they close they swing back so quickly that if I'm wearing a bookbag, it literally slaps me from behind as I'm trying to walk through. I'm not sure if the doors are just heavy, if the magnets are unrelenting or that I'm unnecessarily weak but I know others are having problems with the doors too. It's quite aggravating really. Thank you for your time.

Walter Sampson, Assistant Librarian for Policy Development, responds....
I am sorry that you are having problems opening Cabell Library entrance doors. The doors are 30-35 years old and may not work as smoothly as they once had in the past. Inquiries will be made to the University's Facilities Management department to see if they can make adjustments accordingly.
Again, we apologize for the inconvenience these doors caused you and other library users.
