Battle of the borrowers. Reading is a dangerous sport.

An interesting development since we moved to the library management system, Infiniti, is that the awareness of ‘top student borrowers’ has led to a rivalry of sorts. Currently Noah and Muhammad (Imad) are battling for first place in the apparently coveted spot for prolific readers.

A battle of readers is a most civilised battle. We approve.

  2. Hi Tania, I considered introducing this, but was worried that some students would borrow without reading, just making extra work for the library for no benefit. Has this been an issue for you?

    • No, Lisa, I think that most students don’t actually take notice of ‘top borrowers’, but the few who do are avid readers and take their reading reputations seriously. We don’t promote this in any serious way. It was an observation which we found amusing.
