Of course, more than angry I am hurt. NYU was my home, my dream school, and I feel like I am being cast out with the garbage. I loved this place, and I did everything I could to make it better in my time here - including working with NYU Student & Labor Action Movement to start a campaign for better financial aid. But that didn’t matter. All of these point primarily to one central issue: students are not valued at NYU, but profit is. Here, students are nothing but the customers and the product - we are not people. I find that contrary to everything that I once thought this university stood for.
Trinity College Library at University of Dublin, Ireland
The Library of Trinity College is the largest research library in Ireland. As a result of its historic standing, Trinity College Library Dublin is a legal deposit library (as per Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003) for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and has a similar standing in Irish law. The College is therefore legally entitled to a copy of every book published in Great Britain and Ireland and consequently receives over 100,000 new items every year. The Library contains about five million books, including 30,000 current serials and significant collections of manuscripts, maps, and printed music. Three million books are held in the book depository, “Stacks”, in Santry, from which requests are retrieved twice daily. (wikipedia)
