Library Suggestion Box

During February 2013...

High-Volume Printers

Saturday, February 23, 2013 9:49 am

The library needs high-volume printers that are meant to handle the large daily volume. The current printers are well beyond their intended daily capacity and frequently break or charge students for unprinted pages.

You are right. See my response to the previous comment. A new campus printer/copier contract is in the works.

Higher Quality Printer

The library needs a higher quality printer that will relieve the stress of it breaking day after day

We agree. The university’s procurement department is leading the effort on a new printing campus printer/copier contract, so we should expect to see new equipment relatively soon.

New Subscription

Tuesday, February 19, 2013 9:32 pm

I’d to suggest looking into acquiring an institutional subscription with Le Monde Diplomatique. I’d imagine it’s fairly common at major universities (it was where I did my undergrad). Furthermore it’s an invaluable scholarly resource in regards to current events and contemporary political analysis. I’d love to discuss further. The website is here:

Thank you for your suggestion. Our funds for new subscriptions have been spent for this fiscal year, but we can consider it the next time we have additional funding.

Graduate Lounge Alarm

Monday, February 18, 2013 11:04 am

Instead of having an alarm for the Johnson Graduate Lounge (which disrupts the undergraduates studying when a foolish grad student walks throug h without using their keycard) what if the door were locked always unless you use a grad key card (like the dorms after hours). Just a suggestion!

Thank you for your suggestion. I know that the alarm is very LOUD! That door is a fire exit so we are limited with the ways that it can be handled. We cannot just leave it locked, so there has to be an alarm and a timing mechanism to provide egress. Thanks for the idea, though!

Eight Floor Rattling

Sunday, February 3, 2013 5:04 pm

There is a rattling noise in the corner of the 8th floor of the library by the elevator. Someone came to fix it last semester after I complained 3 times, but it has started up again.

We will call it in again. We are scheduled to replace the heating and cooling system on the 8th floor this summer, so hopefully that will be a mor e permanent fix.
