Patrons call King
difficult to use

Senior Staff Writer

The closest most library patrons
come to adventure is in a Tom
Clancy novel. Unless it
happens to be the Mar-
garet 1. King Library,
where a student may
enter only to never be
heard from again.

Tales of confused

students wandering
aimlessly through the
darkest reaches of King
are the stuff of UK
folklore. Willi every
new year and with eve-
ry new freshman class,
a few more chapters of
frustration and confu-
sion are added to the
ongoing saga.

UK architect Robert
Taylor is one of the
people who wants to
rescue future genera-
tions of students from the fate that
befell him as freshman in l967.

“There was a two-doored eleva-
tor that connected (the original
building and the addition on the
back of it)," Taylor said. “I got in
and pushed the button and some
how wound up at the bottom.

“The back door opened and I
started looking around and I said,
‘Where the hell am 17’ There were
places there where you couldn‘t
get back to (the) front (of the

Taylor eventually found his way
out, although he doesn't remember
exactly how he did it. Now he of-

Faith Hardcrs, associate director

has seen the problem. Students

“If you want to find a book and

you go in on that first level,
you've got lots of options as to
where your book might be," she
said. “The building —— by nature
— is inherently confusing and

complex. That is obvious to every-

Kevin Steely and Josh Meadors
can relate to those emotions. Last
week. they were doing
search for upcoming term papers,
struggling to find a book some-
where 0n Level E.

Steely, a chemical engineering
junior, equated finding a book in
King to digging a needle out of the
proverbial haystack.

“it's harder than doing Chinese
arithmetic," Steely said. “It's hard
to know if they‘re going by the
Dewey (Decimal) system or Li-
brary of Congress."

“It's too complicated," said
Meadors. an electrical engineering
freshman. “l‘ve been wandering
around for 30 minutes just trying
to find one book."

Complexity is not the only fault
patrons find with King.

“I think the thing that frustrates
most people when you go in the
front door and as you go through-
out the building is that for the most
part, it is a rather depressing
place," Harders said.

The original building, what to-
day is known as King South, was
built in 1931. It was originally a
closed-stack library, where stu-
dents came to the service desk and
asked for the books they wanted.
Then the librarian then would

so, you stand a good chance of be-

is.) I'm confident that Phil. Oprah.

Chuck, Ron, Bob, Byron, Arsenio,

I don‘t know how most of these

After all, “Scrabble" and “Love

Is this an act of blasphemy? Not
really. I still think it’s the best talk
show on the air. The Top Ten list is
one of the most consistently funny
features on TV today. talk show or
otherwise. Viewer mail is still fun-
ny. In fact. Letterman is as funny as
ever when he works at it. He just
doesn‘t seem to work at it as often
as he used to.

I take pride in having been a Let-
terman addict since before “Late
Night" hit the airwaves in 1982.
How many people out there remem-
ber Letterman‘s morning show in
1980? Though it only ran a few
months on NBC, the show had the
same warped. goofy style as the late
night version. The time slot was
wrong for that kind of show. Few
morning viewers knew what to
make of Letterman and his loony
brand of humor. This eleven-year-
old may have been enthralled, but
the average housewife preferred
game shows.

there is no one better to take over
“The Tonight Show." But for it to
work, he really needs to remake the
show in his own image. I realize he
can't do that yet, since the show is
still Johnny Carson's, but he will
have to eventually. So far. the only
pan of the Leno “Tonight Show"
that works completely is the mono-

This isn’t surprising: Leno is the
best stand-up in the country. But his
visual gags — the new gift items,
for example — don‘t quite click.
But, like Letterman, Leno's own
winning personality and brilliant
wit make his “Tonight Show" stints
among the best of the talk show

Many of these shows will be
gone in a few months. It's not hard
to figure out why. Ninety percent of
them have nothing to distance
themselves from the pack. They
blur together as one giant talk show
with dozens of hosts, each roaming
through the audience with a hand-
held mike. I’ll pass.

Instead, I‘ll just keep flipping
through the channels, pausing occa-
sionally to savor those rare mo-
ments when something other than a
new talk show is being telecast
