One thought on “Have your say: Which library do you use?

  1. The libraries at Queen’s tend to be closely connected to a particular faculty, especially in the case of the Law library and the Education library. While it is good to promote opportunities for interdisciplinary work and research, the libraries are separate for a reason. Every student should feel free to be in every library to check out the materials that they need. That said, special synergies exist between students of the same faculty. There are different cultural expectations about when it is appropriate to be silent and when it is appropriate to work together. I believe that it is important that study spaces in the faculty-specific libraries be accessible to students from those faculties as much as possible. We need to create enough study space for everyone, so that people from other faculties don’t feel the need to encroach on the study space that is best suited to students from another faculty.
