Library Student Focus Group : STUDENTS Lead Our Library!

April 16, 2018 by An Hollowell | 0 comments

As part of our National Library Week 2018 celebration, the library staff hosted “STUDENTS Lead Our Library” Thursday, April 12th, 12:00 p.m. The purpose of this event was to gather live feedback from students on how to improve library services. Genesee Greco, library student worker, and An Hollowell, public services specialist, had a discussion with 8 student patrons who use the library regularly.

 

Overall, the students agreed that the library staff are easily approachable, put in their best effort to help, and are festive with the library displays. Library hours, computers, furniture, and study spaces were mentioned frequently during the discussion.

Library Hours

  • The students said they understood that we are a small campus/community college, not a 4-year university, and it was not necessary for us to have longer hours.
  • They were happy when we started extending hours until 8:00 p.m., Fall 2017. They said the 7:00 p.m. closings last year were too early.
  • We currently close at 4:30 p.m. on Fridays. A few students suggested we extend our Friday hours until 6:00 p.m. to allow them to use and return our laptops during Friday evening classes.

Computers 

  • There are not enough PC/Windows computers.
  • One student asked if we could add more Mac computers.
  • The students feel sorry for the seniors who have to stand at our public access stations and suggested that the whole section/wall be designated for public access.
  • All the students agreed we need another computer lab on campus.
  • One student suggested opening up the MathLab as a campus computer lab.

Furniture & Study Spaces

  • The students like the layout of the Learning Commons. The office-style desk space provides them room to spread out.
  • The computer carrels in the 3rd floor library area are too small and do not provide enough work space. They suggested we replace them with desks similar to the office-style computer stations in the Learning Commons.
  • There are not enough tables and work space.
  • We need more bean bag chairs throughout the library!

Participants were offered pizza at the end of the session.

If you would like to provide feedback on our library services, please fill out our library survey. Our survey ends Sunday, April 22nd.

Library Books Available at Waianae Moku? Believe It!

Aloha!

In order to ensure that library materials are accessible to students, faculty, and staff at both Leeward Community College campuses, the Library is pleased to announce that books can now be requested for pick-up at Waianae Moku Center!

Requesting an item for delivery to Waianae Moku

On the online Library Catalog (Voyager or OneSearch), once you’ve found the book you are interested in, you can click on “Hold” (OneSearch) or “Get this Item” (Voyager).  After filling out the other necessary fields, on the field that reads “Pick up location” / “Pick up at:” you can select Leeward CC Waianae Moku Center as your site.

Hold Request Hold Request - Pickup Location

Picking up your item

Please allow 1 – 2 business days for your requested item to be transferred from Leeward CC’s Pearl City campus to Waianae Moku.  You can check with the Hawai’i-Pacific Resources Librarian, or at the front desk, to see if your item has arrived.  Items can be returned to those same locations, and they will be routed back to the Library.

The same item loan periods / availability for the Pearl City campus Library apply to items sent to Waianae Moku for pick-up (with due dates being extended slightly to account for travel time between locations).  If you would like to renew your item(s) to extend the loan period, please call the Library’s Circulation Desk at (808) 455-0210.
