The most fascinating part about these libraries is their proximity in terms of space, but distance in terms of scope. They do not serve the same patrons, nor do they have the same needs. Central Library had to solve a major problem: Where to store all of the baby carriages during children's programming. New College has never considered such a problem. While both are libraries, their struggles are completely dissimilar. They hold books and from there they depart from one another.
To me, these visits were the perfect way to end the trip. We can study library science for years, but no two libraries will be faced with the same problems or circumstances. The study of library science is about critical thinking and problem solving within the context a librarian finds themselves in. Looking out for the best interest of patrons, materials, and the overall goals of a particular organization.
