Recently I was told that I should not be too friendly to students in the Library. As a teacher trained librarian I feel that there is much to show that engaging with students in the library as well as in the classroom has much benefit. There is a lot of information and advice about greeting students to the classroom, not so much about libraries.
Below are links to the articles that I have looked at regarding greeting students in the classroom
