Thanks, Themba, for passing this email along.
This is an article about a charging station that has been placed immediately outside of our library. This was not an initiative that I was involved in, so I can’t comment much further on the charging station.
Many learning spaces have had additional outlets installed in the past few years to account for chargers. The majority of our academic buildings have been built bet
ween the 1920s and 1960s, so outlets are generally not plentiful. As we have been renovating classrooms we have been adding in outlets where feasible, whether integrated with the seating in auditoria or around the perimeter of the room.
This is one article about the library’s effort to add outlets to a 1920s building, where aesthetics/historic preservation are concerns: http://www.library.rochester.edu/node/33058
