You: Student Survey
before Spring Break the Law Library solicited student opinions about
library facilities, collections and services through a survey. Nearly
200 students responded. We have already implemented a few of the
suggestions that were offered in survey responses.
The drink policy was changed (with little fanfare but many smiles).
Now, library users may bring in any cup so long as it has a lid. We
have purchased book stands which are available for checkout. The loan
period is four hours, so a student can settle in and outline a chapter
or two, all with his or her case book neatly propped up and easy to
reference. We will also be adding USB drives and umbrellas to list of
items that can be borrowed from the Law Library.
There were also a number of thought provoking suggestions that are not
so easy to implement--issues of lighting and temperature control,
varieties of seating, and hours. The HVAC system in the library annex
is scheduled to be replaced this summer, which should solve many of the
issues with temperature. We are exploring long range possibilities for
adding soft seating and expanding the study areas in the Annex;
however, any changes of this nature will take a couple of years of
planning and budget work. Finally, the library will experiment with
extended hours on Friday and Saturday nights (probably an 11pm closing
time) next Fall semester.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our survey. We appreciate
