Library Cubicles and Outlets

I’m probably not the first to suggest this, but I think it would be a good idea if the individual study cubicles in the Study Hall had power outlets to charge things like phones, tablets, and laptops that students would use for studying.

Also, a ring or something to which a laptop (or other device) can be locked, so that a student who is using their device to study can get up to use the washroom (for example)without having to take the thing with them.

Thank you for your comments.

It sounds like you are referring to LB 239 at Webster Library, which is a study hall with cubicles.  In this study hall, the cubicles do have electricity.  Every second cubicle has two outlets: one for the person in the cubicle and one for the person next to it.

We expect this study room will be closed to students starting Reading Week, for renovations.

But the good news is that LB5 will be opening on March 3, 2016 and there will be 550 seats available to students on this new floor!  All of the tables on LB5 will be electrified as they are on LB3 in the new Reading Rooms.

In terms of providing temporary rings  for security, unfortunately, these would not be secure enough to prevent theft.

An important reminder: you should not leave your valuables when you step away from a workstation or seat.
