The NMSU Library is shedding some light on the problem of illuminating bookstacks efficiently and effectively. It has begun installing wireless light sensors above the shelving on the second and third floors of Zuhl Library that turn on automatically when someone is in the aisle and turn off when the aisle is unoccupied.
“We have wanted to do this green project for a long time,” said Library Dean Elizabeth A. Titus. “The energy cost savings for the University will be substantial.”
As the sustainable lighting project progresses, lights will be turned off in the Library one circuit at a time. Lights may also flicker from time to time. The Library staff will be happy to assist you in locating materials as the lights are being installed.
