dc.description.abstract As new research shows that traditional desks may do more harm than good to students, alternative solutions to the typical table and chair have entered many university libraries. Fondren Library is interested in discovering if substitute options—such as bike desks, standing desk, or under desk elliptical stations—will be useful options at Rice University. This study contains a literature review analyzing the three options, interviews with leading experts in the field of alternative desks, and a survey of all undergraduate students. Finally, a cost-benefit analysis was used to find that Fondren Library should implement both under desk elliptical stations and standing desks to improve student well-being and academic success.
