ATG Quirkies: How Cold Is That Library and Is There Anywhere To Grab a Bite Nearby?

by | May 13, 2019 | 0 comments

  • Looking for a comfortable place to do research this summer? You may want to check out a crowdsourced document called “How Cold Is that Library?”

The brainchild of Megan L. Cook, assistant professor of English at Colby College, “How Cold Is that Library? “already has dozens of entries, from the U.S. to South America and Europe.”

It’s an easy to use spreadsheet with more than 130 entries guiding scholars “of rare books and material texts” on how best to prepare for the physical rigors of serious library research. It even offers tips on “nearby eateries and drinking holes.”
