Student Feedback Leads to Machines Feeding Back in Snacks and Drinks



The students spoke up and the library listened. On August 17, two new vending machines were installed in the Paul Meek Library’s 24-hour computer lab. The machines – a drink machine offering Coke products including Monster energy drinks and a machine providing snacks – were installed thanks in large part to anecdotal student requests and by requests being made on a library survey. Librarian Adam Clemons reported that several students had been wondering why no vending machines were being housed in the library and from listening to student feedback, librarian Jim Nance and interim director Sam Richardson worked to make the requests a reality. Clemons strongly encourages students to provide feedback on surveys and in person on how the library can make improvements and be the best institution it can be for everyone on the UT Martin campus.
