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.

A real coffee shop in the library (and I'm not talking about that silly vending machine). Many more walking treadmills. Color printing for students if that isn't already a thing.

Wish #2 granted! More walking treadmill desks are scheduled to be delivered in early December.

A better printing system. Perhaps one where we can scan our IDs and our available print jobs will appear on screen.

Wish #1 will hopefully be granted in 2016! The library is hoping to move to a new print management system in early 2016.

Access to computing/data analysis software for students--SAS, Stata, Matlab, something of the sort and then some kind of training or class/seminar on how to use them.

Wish #1 partially granted! The library does provide access to SAS, SPSS, JMP Pro and R on library's computer workstations. However, the library does not provide instruction on using these programs.

Apple Macintosh products? I wish we had a few Mac computers on the first floor! If I have my ID badge out, please don't disturb me and ask for it! Better and more staplers around the library. Please get rid of the ones that don't work.

Wish #1 granted! Two new 21.5” iMac computers have been ordered and are now located in the First Floor Information Commons.
