  1. i work in mugar library, and although the police might have responded very quickly to the hoax of 2016, the staff were not alerted, or alerted in a very uneven way. a loud speaker announcement went into one room of the technical services dept, the charles river room, telling them to evacuate (no one else could hear this announcement), and the rest of us got no instruction at all. we wondered why people were exiting out of that particular room. someone as they went out said to us ‘aren’t you leaving? we were told to leave the building’ and so we called the administrative offices to find out what was going on. they said they knew nothing. about two minutes after that, they called us back to say to leave immediately. some student workers and staff in the basement offices never left at all, never got word until later when police were searching the building.
