Help us select chairs for the new RSL

The Radcliffe Science Library refurbishment is progressing well and is on target for completion later this year, and we are now at the point of selecting furniture for the new library.

We would very much like the input of our readers on this. To this end, we have six chairs set up in the Vere Harmsworth Library that we’d like you to try. Some have arms, some have wheels, some are adjustable. Let us know what you think!

Let us know your choices by 14 April 2023.

  1. My favourite chair here is 5. Second is 3, third is 6, and least favourite is 4.

  2. Chair 4 is obviously the only correct answer. Arms on library chairs are irritating and make it more difficult to shift positions and get in and out of the Chair. Wheels are a vital part to any truly useful desk Chair in the 21st century- allowing the user to tuck themselves easily underneath the desk without risk of squeaks or jolted movements.

    Chairs 1 and 2 would be better than 5 and 6. 3 is just ugly.
