Bike sharing and the library

Bike Sharing Comes to the Academic Library


"The problem with offering great coffee, comfy chairs, and 
bicycle rentals to the library is not that these amenities are 
unwelcome -- indeed, they are appreciated by most patrons. The 
problem is that they start diluting the brand of the academic 
library. And a dilution of the academic library brand may make it 
more difficult to justify hiring, retaining, and compensating 
highly trained academic staff."
