Our first floor book drop has been becoming increasingly unreliable (parts breaking, the platform tipping and letting books fall through, etc). Since the 180 bookdrop is the one that gets the most use, the solution for now is to switch out our old, sad one with one of the shiny new ones from another building! Business Ops set up the new one up this afternoon, and switched out the locks so that we can still use our same key to lock and unlock it.
This one is a different model - slim! streamlined! - but it should still hold about the same number of books. However, if when you are getting the books in the mornings you see that it’s over-full, we could start checking the drop twice per day. The lock is on the top back of the unit, and as far as I can tell, to open it you need to unlock it, put your arm in the drop, and open it from below (this will make more sense when you’re looking at it - probably). Let me know if you’re encountering any problems with this.
