Welcoming student-parents into libraries

A few years ago, I wrote a blog post about the difficulties of library access for student-parents. So I am absolutely delighted to see this news story today about the new family study lounge at the University of Glasgow library.

I didn't name and shame at the time but it was in fact at the University of Glasgow library where I had the demoralising experience that set me off looking into the issue. 

I can only hope other universities take note and follow suit. What a fantastic addition to the service offered and much-needed acknowledgement of how many students have to balance their studies with having the responsibility for children.
