This library lighting study focused on developing recommendations to improve energy sustainability and user comfort in the George C. Gordon Library. To assess the energy efficiency of the library's lighting systems, the team measured illuminance and found that half of the rooms in the Gordon Library are improperly lit. The team surveyed library users about illumination preferences and energy conservation habits. Technological updates to the existing lighting systems would reduce long term energy costs and increase lighting comfort levels.
