Law and Order in the Library

Part of my traineeship involves the completion and presentation of a library based or library themed project, so for the past few months I’ve been planning, researching and writing up and today finally presented my findings at our project showcase to an audience of trainees, supervisors and guests!

My project is a case study based on the library rules and regulations within a range of Oxford University Libraries.

If you’d like to know more, here is a more detailed version of the slideshow I presented at the showcase:

    This sounds like an extremely interesting project. I enjoyed looking through your presentation slides. Very much agree with some libraries having students that get annoyed with any noise even that made by staff, I was shushed by a reader once or twice at the law library. Oxford libraries can sometimes be on a different planet to the rest of the university world.

      Thank you – glad you found it interesting! I was quite surprised by how different the Oxford libraries are to other university libraries I’ve been to as well – some interesting comparisons 🙂
