Please thoroughly clean Cabell Library's basement where the computers are. The keyboards are sticky, the tables are dirty, and the floor needs to be swept, mopped and waxed. I have to use the computers in Cabell because I don't have a laptop at the moment and it would be nice to use them in a clean environment. Thank you!

Thank you for bringing the condition in the B-8 lab to our attention. The Libraries has submitted a work order to Facilities for the housekeeping contract company to clean the floor. Your concern about the tables and keyboards has been sent to VCU's Technology Services staff who the operate the B-8 computer lab.
David Brobst, Technology Services, adds...
Technology Services contracts for professional cleaning services five times per semester for the keyboards, mice, monitors, and work surfaces in the B-8 computer lab. In addition, the Tech Squad wipes down keyboards at least once each day, more often than that the during the busier times of the semester. Technology Services also makes disinfecting wipes available for students who want to clean any part of their work area in the lab.
VCU Libraries and Technology Services thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us.
