Bottled Water with Periodical Collections Pat Martin 23 Feb 1996 18:38 UTC

Aloha everyone.

We have a number of study carrels situated throughout our collection of
periodicals.  For the past several years, we have had an increase in the
number of students bringing bottled water into the room, with the
expectation that they will drink while studying.  Is anyone else
experiencing this problem?  And, how do you handle it?  I thought the
bottled water craze had passed!  Maybe it's happening here because of our
warm climate.

Any input would be appreciated.
