Companion piece

Franklin has blogged his Cambridge Find.  I knew he'd do it in inimitable style, and I'm so glad Cambridge hoarded that book and revealed it at just the right time...

This is (yes, librarian digression here) a private sector version of Ranganathan*'s five library laws in action


  1. Books are for use.
  2. Every reader his [or her] book.
  3. Every book its reader.
  4. Save the time of the reader [thank you, Ms Haunted Bookshop]
  5. The library is a growing organism [I'm sure F would agree]


Here is Man with Book.

We used the time to have a look at the Corpus Clock and the Mill Pond and call in on the knitters who were still around at the Cambridge KTog before heading back to the station.

* Yes, I'm linking to Wikipedia; where is ranganathan.org ?

Library laws...nice. I popped in today on a link from the panopticon, and I have subscribed. Can't wait to catch up on back posts, and also looking forward to future posts!

I'm very happy for Franklin: what an amazing find!

This just caps off the story for me.
