One thought on “Have your say: Do you relax in the library?

  1. I don’t relax in the library because I have other spaces to relax. Free time is something that I might associate with a student centre, but not a library, which I see as a compact, intensive and motivating environment where I can best focus on study or research problems. Indeed, the “relaxation” behaviour of other in library settings often interferes with study and academic excellence: it’s distracting. The library is the one place I look to, where the possibility of access to material and good focused study is safeguarded, as much as is practically possible. Relaxation spaces, in my view, don’t need to be located next to study and research resources.
