Q. Your Library Comment Card
I suggest that the Library team with th eBookstore to place a vending machine selling office supplies (pencils, highlighters, etc.) in Alderman or Clemons. The Library desk doesn't always have what I need.
What a wonderful idea! So wonderful, in fact, that we already do this. There is exactly such a vending machine in Clemons - near the photocopiers on the 4th (entrance) floor. Unfortunately, there are limitations to what is profitable for the Bookstore to stock in this machine. Blue books are popular, sticky notes, and the like. Take a look and if there's something that would be useful to add we can talk with the Bookstore about it.
We did talk with the Bookstore about adding a second vending machine in Brown Science and Engineering Library a year or so ago. As it turns out, the machine is not profitable enough to allow them to add a second one.
Thanks for your excellent suggestion!
