  14. 14. Some Problem Areas in the Library
  15. 15. • Since bags are not allowed inside the library, they are kept unguarded outside the library. • Some books are kept in a way that they are not displayed properly. Which makes student unaware of their availability.
  16. 16. • There is not judicious utilization of space
  17. 17. • The shelves are placed too close to each other. • It becomes suffocating to stand inside for too long. • It becomes difficult for two people to stand and pick a book at the same time from opposite shelves. • Also if two doors of shelves are open, a person cannot move in or out of the shelves.
  18. 18. • The books are placed till the lowest shelf. It gets difficult to sit down and look for a book in a congested scenario such as this.
  19. 19. • For a library to have a a glass door or big glass window can be distracting.
  20. 20. • Parts of the library are not very well lit up for a person to read.
  21. 21. o Air Conditioner o Extra Library Staff for the library reception. o Automation o RFIED System : Radio frequency Identification. o Better utilization of space o Access to books for lending and study and the internet through broadband networks. o Shelves without doors so the space used for the door is saved. o Comfortable chairs o Better lighting o Book Club Areas of Improvement
