I hate the library

Take out a three day loan on Friday and it’s already due back Monday, try to renew it 2 hours after it was due back and discover than a twenty pence fine has already been accrued. Fair enough. Knew the rules from the start.

But it seems a rather draconian way to have a stick but no carrot. Seeing how BlogBuilder automatically sends an email every time a comment is posted, surely it can not be that difficult to send an automated reminder, say three hours before closing time, on the last day a book is due is back?

Even Robert Peel, a ghastly Tory, recognised that there was no force without accompanying conciliation. It seems that the full potential of technology and the wonderful Warwick website is being wasted in favour of revenue raising. Perhaps we’re meant to learn the ways of the real world at university but that is a convenient excuse to hide behind for lack of improvement.

Who Am I?

I am a 23-year-old Economics, Politics and International Studies student at the University of Warwick, born and bred in Sunderbans, where I studied at Mount Hermon for several months.
