It has been revealed today that the Hartley Library doors will be changed into revolving doors due to much negative student feedback.

The notoriously temperamental doors to the University’s biggest library have borne the brunt of much student anger and ridicule, particularly since the beginning of this academic year when one of them was made into an emergency-only exit.

Hartley library door: will it open automatically today? Who knows…

A library spokesperson said:

We have increased our transparency with the student body this year by creating photo competitions, questionnaires and surveys to gather student feedback on their library use. Part of the findings included an overwhelming discontent with the entrance doors.

Library staff also found that the doors perplexed open day visitors, as well as causing several problems for disabled students who have often found themselves hit by the door when it suddenly jerks to life unexpectedly.

The building work is set to start in two weeks time, and should be finished by the 24-hour trial period.

An eventual end to an irksome problem, or waste of money? Let us know in comments.
