But you can buy yourself one with the arrival of the Law Library’s new Coke machine (not to be confused with a “New Coke” machine). That is right, we have a Coke machine in the Law Library. Students no longer have the procrastination tool of faking a cough and having to go to the bookstore or second floor vending machines to get something to drink.
The behemoth was rolled in the other day and in a couple of hours was ready to serve library patrons cold drinks. Selections include Minute Maid juice, Monster energy drinks, Vitaminwater, Powerade, Dasani water, and your traditional selection of Coca-cola sodas (Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, Mr. Pibb, and MelloYellow). Unfortunately there is no root beer, but we are working on that.
The Coke machine is located in the Law Library copyroom (UL 116). Incidentally with the arrival of the Coke machine and imminent arrival of the new book scanner (to be explained in a later post), it may be time to rename this room as it will soon house one copier, one scanner, and one Coke machine. The term copyroom no longer seems accurate as the room is no more a copyroom than it is a scanroom or a drinkroom. Perhaps, the copy-scan-drink room?
With that being our best idea so far, we put it to you. What should we call this bizarre, round, brick, room in the middle of the Law Library? The soda can? better yet… the soda scan? That is it. I give up.
Stop by the reference desk and make a suggestion or just find out when the next Library Abridged session will be hosted.
