Stapler availability at Webster library

You wrote:

I was working at Loyola’s library, and was pleasantly surprised to see that they have a stapler AND hole puncher available afterhours- As It Should Be. It never ceases to frustrate me and others at the downtown library as to why the stapler is taken in when the librarians finish for the day. As students, we’re here at all hours, and having a functioning and reliable  stapler should be the least of our worries and something that is guaranteed- heavens knows we pay enough fees. Surely a stapler ought to be included in them.

It’s just infuriating and ludicrous the logic- ‘oh, we have to take them in or someone will steal them- do you know how many we’ve had to replace?’ is the lame excuse I’ve heard so many times. Why don’t you just chain it to the table if there is this concern? But to leave us with nothing… that makes no sense. It seems to work fine at Loyola- why can’t we also have it downtown?

Thank you for your comment.  I can understand your frustration.  Unfortunately, in the past, we’ve had many staplers broken and stolen from the Webster library, some were chained to the desk and some were not.

Library management will consider making a secured stapler available.

This is also a good time to remind our library users that the DPrint/MFD machines have stapling capabilities for both newly printed pages and photocopies.

This is from our DPrint webpage:

Q: Will the printer-copiers automatically staple my documents?

A: By default print-outs and photocopies are not are not stapled, but you can request that the print-outs be stapled.

Printing: Before you send the print job, go to the print dialogue box and click on ‘preferences’. On the right side of the box there is a ‘stapling’ drop-down menu. Choose 1 or 2 staples.

Photocopying: You must be using the feeder. On the main ‘Copy’ page on the right hand side choose ‘1 staple’.

Seats at the express workstations and staplers

I wish you have bar stools for the l0 min computers. I am OLD and standing for 10 min hurts my legs.

Would you please chain a stabler to the leg of one of t he tables or chairs after the workers have left the library? Last night I had to submit my work to my professor. I found it inconvenient to leave my papers unstable in her mail box. She could mix up my papers.  Don’t expect me to carry a stable and other stationery around because they are too heavy and too expensive for a poor student.

Thank you.

Thank you for your email.  In the Webster Library, there are express workstations that are at a lower level and that have chairs.  If you have trouble standing for a certain period of time, please use them.  They are there for you.  At the Vanier Library, it is true that there are no seats available at the express workstations.  I have passed your suggestion to the Vanier Library Director.

As for the stapler….unfortunately, the stapler at the Webster Library has to be put away at the end of service hours because otherwise the stapler will be stolen or broken beyond repair.  This happens even when it is attached to the furniture. Nevertheless, I have passed your comment on to the Director of the Webster Library.
