Key Findings from the Interview

  • Prefers using laptops in a quiet and private space, but has a gaming laptop that takes a lot of battery
    • Wants more charging ports at convenient places in a library
  • Would you rather have large, open spaces, or smaller and more enclosed spaces?
    • "I prefer the latter, and most students would, too. Being in the open just makes it harder to think."
  • What do you see as a major environmental issue in libraries?
    • "From my experience, since there are a lot of people in Beijing, it is insanely difficult to make sure the place is always sanitary. Most people are too lazy to even walk to a garbage place, let alone sort it themselves."
