Rutgers library policy restricts public access, education

(12/02/14 2:08am)

The University libraries are dealing with the capacity issue the wrong way. Instead of limiting the number of people allowed to enter the libraries, Rutgers libraries should consider expanding to include more buildings to use as extensions to the libraries. Rutgers libraries are justifying the new policy (which only allows Rutgers students with IDs to be in the building after 10 p.m.) by stating that the general student body is happy with it. However, I feel that as a public institution, Rutgers libraries should not limit access to books and thus education from the public. We never know where and who our world’s next genius is and where he or she may come from. Limiting the public to the doors of education is just not the American way. The new policy goes against what America stands for: freedom and opportunity.
