Library Conditions photographs

Photographs were taken on Monday November 10,1986 by a library staff member to record the condition the Library was found in on that Monday, after the Sunday's opening. After President Brian Segal and Vice President Tom Sosa inspected the Library, Segal issued a letter to the Ryerson Community expressing his disgust and concern. He further announced the closure of the library for following Sunday, November 16. SURPI (student union) reacted by organizing an overnight sit-in to take place Saturday, November 15 to Sunday, November 16 in protest of Segal's action. Segal later reversed his decision, but the sit-in went ahead as planned. For more details see : Library Doc. File, Forum November 14, 1986.
