Label the plugs at the library

Anonymous submitted on

Tuesday 9th January 2018


Sometimes the plug sockets at a desk had broken and I wanted to report it but there was no simple way of telling staff which socket i meant. Perhaps we could implement a system to name each socket (nothing complicated e.g. 01/001 floor/number) and label them at the socket so that all students had to do it to note down the name and then maintainence could locate it with a floor plan? eve better if there's an online interface to report the problem so students can work wothout interuption.

Hello again!

I have a response from the Library, and I am pleased to say that it is good news:

"Thank you for your suggestion.  We think this would be useful to staff and students.  However, It is a big job as we have over 1000 sockets.  We will undertake this work over the summer when we have devised a numbering system and  the time to implement it."

I know that this isn't immediate, but I hope you'll agree with me that this is a step in the right direction. For now, I'd recommend letting the Library staff on the front desk know about any issues which you may be having. 

Since your submission has now been answered as best it can for the moment I'm going to close this You Make Change, but don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any more questions. 

All the best, and thanks for submitting this You Make Change!

Thanks for getting in touch - this is really nice idea that should help to improve the experience of students while studying, so I'll pass it on to the Library and see what they say.

I'll be back once I have an update from them!

All the best,
