Demo a donut – it’s question time again!


Question time again this week for our dedicated Demo a Donut devotees..(D4 – see what I did there?)

We already offer you a gazillion useful services in your library, including:

  • Borrowing, holds, reserve collection access
  • Copying, printing and binding
  • Library and IT help
  • Research support
  • Workshops
  • Handing in assignments

What we’d like to know this week is, what DON’T we do that would be useful?

We’ve extended opening hours, we’re about to extend your library space, what else do  you need?

From now until the end of this week (Friday, May 3) make a suggestion here for a chance to win a pair of Skullcandy GI headphones. Semper fi, soldier…: )

See you soon!

      Emily, thanks for commenting! The library extension which will be open for second semester will provide more group study space including a 24/7 Link-up Lounge.

    The library needs a printing quota as well as more chairs/tables.

      Tables and chairs we will do in the library extension, Matthew. Can you come and talk to me further about the printing quota? Oh, and collect the Skullcandy headphones you won! See you soon.

    I would really love it if there were more powerpoints throughout the library. It would make it easier to use laptops and ipads for work.

      We’re doing our best providing powerpoints, Tobiah. The library extension will give you more space and more powerpoint locations!

    I think the library needs a few more power points to plug your laptop charger in; particularly up stairs 🙂

    • loribowe says:

      Absolutely agree with you, Karl. Thanks for your comment. We are limited in the amount of powerpoints we can provide in the ‘old’ part of the library. We’re putting them everywhere we can think of in the library extension though!

    The library needs more power points upstairs in the ‘new area’

      Thanks, Jessica. The structure of the ‘old’ part of the library building does limit where we can install more power. There will be more options for you in the library extension though.

    I would love to see more powerpoints upstairs, cold water to fill up water bottles and more beans in the beanbags (most of them don’t have enough to sit in comfortably) Thanks Library peoples your donuts are awesome!

    • loribowe says:

      We refill the beanbags every 12 months, Alysha. Sounds like they’re ready for a top up sooner rather than later! More cold water and powerpoints will be provided in the library extension. Open for second semester! And you’re welcome on the donuts…

      Powerpoints and tables we’re working on in the library extension, Alexander. Sleeping areas – now there’s an idea. What do you see? Something like a first class airline sleeping pod?

    Personally I would appreciate more databases/journals in LOTE (languages other than English) as a lot of good sources are there…
