Subject: Food and drink in the library

Food and drink in the library

From: Roxanna Herrick <roxanna>

I know this has been discussed many times, but I would certainly
appreciate opinions, experience, and thoughts on the question of
allowing food and drink in the library.  While our library does not
"officially" allow food and drink, students inevitably bring them in,
and the policy seems unenforceable.  Also, there is great student
dissatisfaction with the policy.  It seems that some arrangements will
have to be made to accommodate their desires.  What, if any of you have
come up with sound (from a preservation perspective) ways to address
this issue?  Any thoughts, advice, etc. will be welcome.  Thanks.

    **** Moderator's comments:   If folks would send their policies on
    stuff like this to CoOL we could save an awful lot of repetition.
    If you've got something you'd like to contribute--in electronic
    form--please get in touch with me <waiscool [at] palimpsest__stanford__edu>
