FURTHER DECLINE OF THE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY

As if the eating of food over public books and computer equipment weren't enough; as if listening to one's ipod at a volume loud enough for one's neighbour to sing along weren't enough; as if the writing of notes in the margins (and bads one at that) of shared books weren't enough; the level of respect and decorum at the Queen's libraries continues to decline.

Note to people "whispering" in the library: if you are "whispering" to someone four seats over and one seat across a table, and that person can hear you, everyone in between you and your companion can hear you as well. "Whispering" about what your buddy is writing on messenger doesn't make it any less intrusive.

You know what I find somewhat ironic? That the library is becoming less of a library while Chapters/Indigo has more and more of a feel of a library...
