Maughan Library - July 29 2010

from http://www.victorianweb.org/art/architecture/london/121g.html
Our last tour was the library of our host college, King's College's, Maughan Library. It's located off of Fleet Street in an incredible building. That's of course is right in the neighborhood of Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett.  Inside the library was a multitude of new shelves lined with books and study areas and computers for students. They preserved the integrity of the building and added a new generation of library systems to it. There were self check out machines and reference computers at many corners. Even though with these new gadgets, librarians are always on hand to help.  One of the most impressive reading rooms is the round room lined with shelves to the top. It's a quiet study room as voices and any noise echos extremely in there.
