Disappearing Magazines

June 20, 2012


There should be a note attached to the magazine/newspaper spindle to “Please do not take home magazines or newspapers, as they are Ebling Library property” (These disappear on a daily basis).


I, too have noticed this – typically we locate displaced magazines and newspapers upstairs and bring them back down again, but some simply walk out of the library.

I am not a huge fan of signage (and feel we have too much of it already) so am trying to find some better approach – such as a more positive phrasing or perhaps placing labels on the magazines themselves. Anyway, expect to see some brilliant solution, or failing that, more signage.
