It might seem a bit early to declare the “winner” of the “most borrowed item” at the Divinity Library for 2016-17, but our wooden bookrests are way out of reach for the next items in the list. However, because our bookrests were so popoular, we bought a third wooden one, and one plastic bookrest. Every year, students tell us in our annual library survey that we should buy ‘more books‘, often not specifying for which paper they were missing books, or more precisely multiple copies of a specific book. We took this, however, as a call to action! In the fashion of ‘you said, we did‘, we have been much more proactive in 2016-17: we ran reports (at least once per term) on which books had been requested, and also which were the most borrowed, and: ordered more copies were these were available. We also investigated buying more ebooks, where possible.

Anyway, you might find the following lists of the most borrowed books between October 2016 and May 2017 of interest:
