Q. Is there somewhere in the library where I can rest and recharge?
- UCC Library now has an EnergyPod on Q+3 near the Multimedia area.
- It is a reclining chair where you can either relax or nap for up to 20 minutes.
- A short nap can refresh you and increase alertness and productivity*.
- The control panel is on the inside of the arm of the chair.
- Close the privacy visor to block out distractions.
- Plug in headphones to listen to music.
- There are storage areas beside the seat inside the pod where you can store your belongings.
- The red and green status lights at the back show if the unit is free (green light) and how long it will be occupied (red light flashing).
