Open or shut case on library hours

Some universities have closed libraries because the PM said libraries have to close

But they are open at others, which say Mr Morrison meant community libraries not uni ones.

So should either group should have the book thrown at it?

Universities Australia says official advice is that; “as a workplace, libraries are part of the university and can continue to operate as such if they meet the requirements for social/physical distancing.  But, you should manage that workplace in keeping with the requirement to avoid non-essential gatherings which prohibits individuals from gathering in libraries. Remote service, delivery based arrangements, etc. should be explored.”

But as universities make up their minds managements might want to consider people who need to spend time in the stacks. There is talk of a campaign at Uni Sydney, where physical libraries are closed, of time-extensions for honours/masters theses.
