National Libraries Day 2015: Jerome Simons’s thoughts on Nuffield College Library

National Libraries Day

Economics student, Jerome Simons, tells us what it is that he likes about Nuffield College Library in our third post for National Libraries Day:

I like the fact that Nuffield’s library is staffed by book aficionados. I cannot think of any other institution that would have preferred an older, used, high-quality bound copy to a new cheap repro one and contacting vintage booksellers about it.

Book nominations:
Aspects of multivariate statistical theory book coverAspects of multivariate statistical theory by Robb J. Muirhead (shelf mark QA 278.M).

Economics of the family book coverEconomics of the family by Martin Browning, Pierre-André Chiappori and Yoram Weiss (shelf mark HQ 519.B).
