Mischief II

Update: The missing laptop was not missing. A staff person had it. Our IT guy told a student asst to check it out to the staff person, but the student wasn't up to the task. So nothing to worry about. All laptops are safe. Our doors on the other hand...

UZ Library Incident Reporting Form Submission

Incident date: 8/4/06
Incident time: 8:30pm
Exact location: 4th floor entrance
Reported to: The Boss
Department Name: Library X

Nature of Offense: A glass pane in Library X's front automatic-entry door was thoroughly cracked on Friday night. Student assistants were working at the circulation desk at the time. A woman, who apparently witnessed the incident, came into the library and told the students that boys were "play" fighting on the terrace, and one of them crashed into the door. The students called me at home and I asked them to call in UPD. The officer from UPD came to the library and took the police report. They put up a sign and police tape to prevent use of the door. The door was deemed secure enough to close the building at 10pm as usual. As far as we know, whoever caused the crack was not inside the library at any time. It seems unlikely that we will be able to determine if it was an accident or vandalism.

-------End of Report-------

The door was shattered. It looks dangerous to touch. No glass looks to have fallen, but a good nudge could change that. The student assts from that night say they didn't see or hear anything. It's hard to believe. For glass to be that destroyed, surely there would've been a sound, but I don't doubt the students assts.

Unfortunately, this was our handicap door so we have to keep an eye out for anyone needing assistance into the building, but on the bright side, it's our handicap door, so they'll rush the order to fix it.

I think the most exciting/disturbing thing that ever happened at my uni library was the sheep enquiry. The students at UZ seem way friskier.

ONe day at my last University Library gig, we came in and a glass partion *between* the door and the wall was shattered. It was safty glass, so it had splintered into a buh-zillion pieces and left a neat little mound on the floor.

THe pile was didtributed such that it was obvious no one had touched it.

We finally decided it was a wierd air-conditioning thing and just got it fxed, but it was really wierd!
