Standing Desks Available in the Learning Commons

According to a recent U.S. News & World Report article, standing desks may have positive health benefits. Research suggests that using a standing desk can encourage people to spend less time sitting. People who sit with poor posture put themselves at risk for a raft of health problems, including “misalignment of the spine and knees, which can increase stress on the knees; exacerbation of arthritis; poor circulation; fatigue; jaw pain; headaches; sexual function issues; and shoulder and back pain.”

The law library now has two standing desks located in the Judy and Robert Rawson Learning Commons on the second floor. Check them out and let us know what you think! Drop a message in the cardboard boxes at the desk anonymously or send an email to Student Services Librarian Brian Cassidy at
