Dropbox for return books around the campus! Please!

there is a lot of medical and biology books from Springer, but we don't have access to. It will be great if we can purchase Springer access.

no third wish, our library rocks!

Ability to use UpToDate mobile application. Having to go through proxy process and use browser version is to clunky to be feasible in a clinical situation

More textbooks that medical students need

More practical board review materials (First Aid, qbanks, etc.)

Wish 1 - The UpToDate mobile app is now available! Wish 2 - we received a list of required textbooks for 1st year medical students. We owned all but a couple are working to order them now.

It would be great if the library was open past 6 pm on Friday and Saturday nights.

I wish the lights in the study rooms on the second floor were not motion-sensored. It is very irritating when you are studying and the lights keep turning off.

I wish the library had anatomical models of the lungs.

Wish 3 - Your wish has been granted, you can check out the lungs model from the desk with call number WF 101 L9633

Re-subscribe for Henry Stewart Talks. They are a great source of biological information and a great way to access free lectures. Thanks!

Better training for library personnel. I was shocked when I visited the library recently looking for a book with a good review chapter about tuberculosis, and the person at the circulation desk didn't know how to help me search for one. The only reason that I have to go to the library nowadays is to get books--if the library can't do that, then I have no reason to physically visit the library at all.

A science librarian or bioinformatics person. Access to resources like NCBI is important, and the library could help people with this.

I know that this is a tough one, but I wish that the library could acquire more books in my specialty area. Right now I buy books for my lab out of my own pocket. This seems like something that the library should be doing.

Get more books and have a wider range of books. I would model it after the NC State library system: http://lib.ncsu.edu/. They have an interlibrary loan system called "Tripsaver" where you can borrow books from other libraries.

Subscribe to Springer Protocols. I would like to see Current Protocols in Protein Science.

Have a nicer library that incorporates newer technology as well as technology lending.
