This week I visited the Shaver Engineering Library at the University of Lexington, KY. They have a most peculiar room to house their Standards: the ladies restrooms! Alas, there is no more sanitary equipment (or is this a good thing? :) ) but the tile, mirrors and feminine products dispenser were still there. Director James Manasco wouldn't show us what was in the men restrooms...
