For laptops to be available for check out for more thAn two days. Could we have 6 days? Renew them twice or 3 times? I check out a computer and two days is sometimes not enough having clinicals etc etc More laptops for checkout. Sanitation wipes available by all desktop computers to wipe off.

Wishes #1 and #2 granted! Laptops will soon circulate for three days with one renewal allowed. Additionally more laptops have been ordered and will be added to the circulating collection soon.

More microwaves More water bottle filling stations (check out the ones in Ed2 North, they are spigots connected to existing fountains and would likely be cheaper than the in-the-wall unit put on the first floor) More walking and standing study tables

Wish #3 granted! We've ordered additional walkstations and standing desks. Now there are 4 walkstations and 5 standing desks in the building.

It would be great if the wireless printing was easier to access since most student have their own laptops that they are using. My last university had a wireless printing system which only required the scanning of your student ID to pay for it (and $50 of printing was included in student fees). The current wireless system is much more work than it seems it is worth.

Wish #1 will hopefully be granted in early 2016! The library is currently looking to implement a new printing system in 2016.
