What Do Students Say About Law Libraries
Law students blogging about law libraries is the subject of an interesting article appearing in the Spring 2006 ALL-SIS Newsletter. The article by Rob Hudson, Faculty Services Librarian, St. Thomas University School of Law gives you a glimpse into the thoughts of students on topics ranging from library rules, aesthetics, destroying or hiding books, climate control, reserve materials and other topics. Here are a few noteworthy examples:
“There are some section two kids on the other side of the library with a couple of bottles of wine. Not celebrating, I don’t think, but just to take the edge off this torture.” (Parenthetical Statement, May 11, 2003).
“I’m at my usual spot in the library and I’ve noticed an increase in the number of hot chicks walking in to presumably study. Apparently, a lot of them made a New Year’s resolution to spend more time in the library, especially the blond ones.” (WaynesRoller, Jan. 11, 2004).
And my favorite: “Library? I don’t even know where the library is!” (Jeremy’s Weblog, Mar. 22, 2004).
The Newsletter contains some other great articles including one by Brian Huddleston of Loyola New Orleans detailing his experience post-Katrina.
