Hi, Jacqueline! We know the current outlet configuration is inconvenient, and we agree that there should be more. In fact, it's one of our top priorities in our ongoing library reconfiguration project. We are looking at ways to get more electrical drops in the building, and we've looked at some library furniture that does have embedded outlets. (Great minds think alike!)
Unfortunately, all projects at a university hinge on budget and timing, and sometimes we have to go through a lot of red tape and waiting to make things happen. At the moment, some of our plans are on pause simply because of funding. We haven't forgotten about student needs, and we take them very seriously -- you are our #1 customers, after all. I realize it doesn't help the short-term situation, but please know that we will correct the outlet situation when the funds become available.
Thanks for your interest in the library.
