Staff Counting Use of VML Spaces (11/6-10 and 20-24)

VetMed News - Thu, 2013-11-07 12:59

The Libraries want to make sure our spaces and technology meet your needs. Twice a semester library staff walk around each hour to count where people are sitting and whether desktop or laptop computers are being used. We use an iPad application developed here at NCSU (see below). The data helps us work with the Vet Med Library Committee and CVM to decide on placement of desktop machines and furniture.

DVM finals week is our heaviest usage time. During this week, we will take these hourly counts from November 20 – November 24 to compare this use with our regular usage which is being taken from November 6-10. We try very hard not to disturb you when taking these counts, but we understand that you notice when we are looking at you and entering the counts. Please be assured that it is just a headcount and no other identifying information is recorded.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us (919-513-6218 ; libraryvetmed@ncsu.edu) or stop by the desk and let us know. Thank you for your patience.
