Are students allergic to libraries?
A recent report on the BBC website reveals there has been a 22% long-term decline in visits by students to their university and college libraries. This equates to an annual fall of 3% apparently.
It is important also to remember that for a medievalist at least, the library is a social place. One may work in quietude among the stacks, but the tea room, and believe me a tea room is essential for a decent library, is where you meet your colleagues, exchange the latest gossip and discuss your research, thus opening up further lines of enquiry to be chased through those lovely books waiting for you on the shelves.
