I am working in the Loyola library, and I cannot Begin to explain to you the excruciatingly annoying noise the copy card machine for printing makes- it sounds like it’s screaming when a hapless student is just trying to print something (main floor). This is absolutely ridiculous not to mention frustrating beyond belief. The machines downtown are quiet- why must we suffer here?
If this simple thing could be looked into, we would be most grateful.
Thank you for your message. I am assuming that you are referring to the DPrint Loader, that is situated next to the Circulation Desk at the Vanier Library. You are right, the noises from that machine can be startling and annoying sometimes. The machine beeps loudly when the user has not followed through in completing the transaction.
The downtown machines make the same noises as the ones at Loyola. However, they are not in the Library! That’s why you have not heard them. 🙂 We have had several complaints from downtown students because the old debit card dispenser was not in the Webster Library, but down on the main floor of the LB building. I think that the occasional noise from the loader at the Vanier Library is a fair price to pay in order to have the convenience of the loader in the Library.
I suggest that you sit away from the DPrint Loader if its noises distract you.
