Marking or damaging library resources

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I'm surprised there is no propaganda anywhere about the evils of writing in library books. I actually watched a fellow student mark up a library book with a highlighter pen, sitting in class just a few metres from the professor and in full view of other people who might want to read that book some day. Am I the only person who finds it unbelievably annoying to try to read through pages and pages of underlining, highlighting, and moronic annotations? There are lots of antisocial behaviours that in spite of their private nature are publicly censured.
