Rutgers Drops Library Studies, Gains Stripes

Library Journal gives complete coverage to the name-change controversy, which ended this week with the Board of Governors approving the switch.

In addition to shattering the Guinness World Record for the most Where's Waldo? namesakes in one locale, participants donated over 3,000 books to New Brunswick public schools.
