The Library asked for students’ opinions of the 24 Hour Study Space. This room was constructed in response to student requests. For our future planning, we want to know what you would like.
Thank you for your comments!
You said: It was too cold, it was too hot, or it was just right.
We say: It should be okay now. Let us know if it isn’t.
Group Study Rooms:
You said: One person takes the room that is intended for a group.
We say: If this happens when Library staff is available, please let us know and we will ask the person to yield the room.
You said: More group study rooms and larger group study rooms.
We say: The Library is looking for ways and places for more group study rooms that will be constructed as funds and space permit.
You said: More of the cushioned rocker chairs because the wooden ones are too hard.
We say: We are ordering more.
You said: Several people asked for a vending machine for beverages,other asked for a hot water machine.
We say: A soda/cold water vending machine was installed today! There are two water fountains by the restroom. We are investigating the possibility of getting a water cooler that dispenses hot water.
You said: More and higher tables.
We say: All new tables will be higher and we will look at fixing leg room for our current tables.
You said: Love seats for intimate relations, and several people asked for cup holders.
We say: New chairs will be lounge chairs with tablet arms and cup holders.
You said: Food
We say: Vending machine is in place.
You said: Staplers, hole punchers
We say: Done!
You said: Several people asked for two sided printing.
We say: We’re trying. We appreciate students’ interest in conserving paper and trees. This is very important to us as well. The printer in the new 24 hour room is set to print two sided. Wireless jobs go to this printer. If you do not want two sided printing, you need to change the default. One of your subsidized prints (or seven cents) is deducted for each side you print. The expense of printing is the toner more than the paper. While the other printers in the Library could print two sided, they are not working well with UniPrint. We will continue to try to provide this service.
You said: Newspapers
We say: These are available on the second floor when the Library is open.
You said: Have a gate come down for the counter area and then connect the two after hour sections.
We say: We thought about that, but there is no way to close off the stair case leading to the second floor.
You said: Can we have an entrance open on the side of the Library for more convenient access from DeNaples.
We say: If we could use the time machine someone requested, we would go forward in time and connect the two buildings.
You said: Have “after hours entrance” always open.
We say: This exit does not have a gate like the other entrances/exits do so we need to have people leave through the exits with the security gates.
You said: Any way to keep the 2nd floor open as well—more space, computers, books and good times!!
We say: We need to control access to the second floor collection, desks and offices to times when staff are present.
You said: Color printer
We say: Libraries that have these charge 25 cents a page. Right now, the Library is opting to subsidize 200 prints per semester (with an additional 50 for those taking Intersession classes)
You said: Kittens; Cuddly cute animal/puppy viewing area (lots of people liked this idea); Swimming pool; Time machine; Headphone station
