QUESTION: (okay, more of a statement) More electrical outlets.
ANSWER: We hear you. Seriously. This summer, when we re-arranged our furniture in Shields Library to help form quiet, study, and group zones, we took into account all of the locations where we could extend power by adding surge protectors to the tops of tables.
The first round (summer ’13) we added approximately 30 surge protectors, extending the plug-in option for 180 computers, phones, etc. Just a month ago we approved funding for another 49 surge protectors or 294 outlets. When the next set of surge protectors come in we will have added 474 outlets on or adjacent to study tables.
We expect this project to take until the end of the quarter to finish, but once done you’ll have many more options for keeping your digital tools fully charged!
