a librarian’s worth

January 13, 2012

While we’re open 24/7 this month (we’re trust you’re making the most of it but also staying safe and healthy), spare a thought for the staff who beaver away either on the frontline at desks or behind the scenes.

We’d love to know how staff have helped you in your time at Portsmouth – so feel free to comment!

Of all the libraryish things that have circulated in the last year or so, this gem of a four minute film has probably been the one that has been most enjoyed and talked about.  Most love it for the excellence of execution.  The odd one or two hate it for (supposedly) reinforcing stereotypes.

UoP Library has just introduced a zoning policy where silence (not even laptop key tapping) is expected in certain areas but (shock, horror!) mobile phones and cold food are allowed in others.  Hopefully that will rein in any of the secret tendencies of staff to fantasise about the film.
