A wet pig never gets nettle rash

The results of the poll have come in and I have to suspect that a majority of my readers have an understanding of our library management that can only be achieved by going native.

I asked: You're planning to build a new library. What's the most important priority?

You said:
  • Specifying public areas 0%
  • Specifying work areas 0%
  • Making sure there's enough shelving 0%
  • Consulting the right people 5%
  • Consulting the wrong people 10%
  • Having enough money to do the job 19%
And the winner by a head:
  • Getting the right font for the title on the specification 67%

But what is the right font? Enquiring minds need to know.

It's never the one you've chosen

There should have been a question on the list: "A library is a font of information. Exactly what sort of font should it be?"

Here it would be is there enough money to hire consultants who can do any of the actual work that needs doing.

Gadjo: if we can't cope with questions like "do you want me to report this problem?" I can't see us getting into Wittgensteinian dialectic.

Ms. Cow: we hire consultants to tell us what we already know so that we can ignore it again.
