Survey Results Discussion Continued: Temperature

The temperature in the library (and the entire law school building) is difficult to regulate, not only because of the wide open spaces involved, but also because traffic and the people in the room do affect the temperature. In the library, all of the thermostats are set to 72 degrees. Since many complained about it being too cold, however, we are asking our Plant Department to change these settings to 75 degrees. It may take several adjustments to pinpoint the temperature at which most users are comfortable, so please bear with us as we try to determine the ideal setting.

In the meantime, I would like to remind everyone that if you ever find it too hot or cold in a particular area of the library, please feel free to report the problem to the circulation desk attendants. We do call Plant to check the temperature when we receive complaints.

Please also remember that everyone has a different temperature comfort level. Because of that, we frequently get complaints that the same room, at the same time is too hot and too cold. In those cases, there is no temperature ideal for both parties, so we try to pick a midway point.
