Kinetic energy is danger.

    Funny pic. I think I liked your first explanation better though!
  • David Fiander 9y

    You should add these photos to the "Libraries & Librarians" group! It's all of our worst nightmare.

    I was vaguely amused at this, some tv commercials coming to mind, but when I saw that it was from the U of I Library, I was horrified! I worked there a few decades back and was just last night regaling a former grade school classmate with my take on why the U of I Library was one of the world's greatest libraries (he was under the mistaken impression that U of Texas had a better library). Possibly the Schools of Engineering and Architecture should be called in to survey the facilities to prevent further damage to that great collection!

    Hahha, at first I didn't tag it with UIUC, but now I feel like I ought to. The accident took place in the old History library on the 4th floor. I guess that means they moved the collection to a better, safer place.

    librarians are the sexiest beings on earth.
  • Oscar Ferrer 9y

    WoW what a mess! Good thing noone was in there and got hurt! Hope you got it all sorted out.
  • broken thoughts 9y

    History and Philosophy are now in with the Newspaper Library on the 2nd floor.

    Oh Boing Boing, all you do is blurb and views shoot through the roof. Feel the power, baby!
  • bryan lowe 9y

    Oh Bugger!
  • Betsy 9y

    To all the librarians here - haven't there been times when you really wanted to do this on purpose, though?

    Or is it just me?
  • Håkon 9y

    I am a librarian in Norway. And when I get the money I will buy lots of books and lots of shelves and... well, you know... Try it out :)
  • daichan00 9y

    This kinda reminds me of Rachel Weiss in the beginning of the Mummy!
  • Phong Le 9y

    Cool!!!! I'll try that with my local library if all the shelves are not bolted to the floor.
  • Prentiss Riddle 9y

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Howard's End.

    I do believe OSHA would tell you to install the shelves so that can't happen...
  • anplica 9y

    I was also thinking along the lines of The Mummy! LOL Thanks for beating me to this punch, daichan00. I followed the link from The Laughing Librarian blog (www.laughinglibrarian.com/). Must of been interesting to watch, but a pain to clean up after!! Makes me thankful that my shelves aren't lined up this way in my library.
