Using Lighting Levels to Control Sound Levels in a College Library.
College & Undergraduate Libraries, v4 n2 p25-28 1997
Many libraries have noise problems that can't be fixed with ceiling and carpet treatments, physical arrangement, or sound barriers. This study at Henderson Community College (Henderson KY) attempted to confirm results from an earlier study suggesting that reducing light levels led to reduced noise. The data showed mixed results, but overall the average sound level was slightly lower under full lighting. (PEN)
