A recent article advocates “nap stations” in university libraries:
Since college students frequently are observed asleep wherever they are throughout the day, research indicates universities should consider the advantages to students of providing an area where they can nap safely and comfortably. The library seems to be ideally situated for this, since students are in the library studying when they may need to take a break, and it is usually open many hours. (Wise, 2018)
It mentions a pioneer – the University of East Anglia, no less – that has a Nap Nook in its student union. Other universities have library “nap pods”.
INTO UEA Resource Centre originally had some beanbags, but they attracted noisy students, rather than sleepy ones, not to mention an English teacher with a tendency to snore. (He subsequently took to the sofa, as pictured.)
