The closure of the University of Lincoln GCW Library’s “More Book” service has been criticised by a number of students. John Fernandez reports.
After it was revealed that students raised almost £200,000 in two years through library fines, Ian Snowley, a university librarian, explained why fines are necessary and discussed the future of the library.
The second Student Council session of the year saw followup to the cancellation of the Ebrary, a new bridge over the railway crossing and recycling facilities at the university.
The university’s library has cancelled their Ebrary subscription as it was not cost effective and is working to replace all used titles by buying them outright.
Lincoln students have handed over thousands of pounds to the library in the past few years, with figures suggesting this year to be the library’s biggest haul yet.
The University of Lincoln’s library will again be open around the clock around Easter, with a total of four whole weeks of 24 hour access to the library.
A “learning garden” and ground-floor “social learning space” will be among the many changes coming soon to the University of Lincoln’s library, says its director.
