As an previous art student I have had no real need to use the library but coming on to a course studying Government, Law, Public Sector and so on I can officially say the Library is useful.
Just the other day I spent over 14 hours studying the same topic, Law and the Criminal Justice System, in a 24 hour library! And what a life saver that was; I would never have gotten so much work done if it wasn’t for the quiet areas and the some what forced work atmosphere.
However it isn’t just about the atmosphere I have been required to find information from various sources and using books gave me clear and precise information rather than using the internet which anyone can contribute too.
Have to make sure my referencing is a legitimate source and books are the safest way.
