It’s cold in here, maybe!

May 13, 2016


It is always so COLD!!! Please turn up the heat to reasonable level!



So apparently there’s some dispute on how cold it is in here. This is common. In my experience as the main complaint-receiver, I’ve┬ánoticed everybody’s comfort zone is different. Complicating matters is that temperatures in the HSLC are mostly regulated by a chilled-water system, which is slow and difficult to adjust.

One tactic I have seen work is moving to another part of the building; temperature seems to vary a lot between floors and areas of the library – near the windows on the east side seems warmest. Also, don’t hesitate to make use of our many blankets scattered about. If you have difficulty finding one, we have some available at the service desk.
