We've always thought students at Harvard Law School (HLS) are elitist and selfish; now we know for sure. At their last meeting, members of HLS's Library Committee discussed restricting access to Langdell Library to HLS students only. According to the Law Record, they dismissed the idea--for fear of "retaliatory action from other libraries."

Alyssa Caples, a committee representative, assures us that the idea was only "mentioned briefly and immediately dismissed." All the same, we are both amused and disturbed that fellow students would even consider barring us from such an important shared learning resource (read: pleasure dome), especially since the library is far from filled by law students on most nights. To the law students we say, "Bring it on," reminding you that Widener is part of the Harvard College Library System.
