notability of branch libraries
This is just my personal summary:
- Based on recent discussions at AfD, I do not think most individual subject branch university libraries will be considered notable, and I would suggest incorporating them as sections into the main article. It is now possible to link to a section of an article, e.g. <nowikii>Y University Library#Jones Art Library</nowiki> There are, of course, some truly notable exceptions.
- Similarly, I do not think any neighborhood branch library will be considered notable; with very rare exceptions I do not think they will be considered worth a section, and I suggest a list within the main article for the city library..
- Individual town libraries have also been held non-notable, and are usually redirected to a section of the article on the town. County libraries, similarly.
- It doesn't matter whether we who are interested in them think them notable, because the consensus at WP apparently doesn't. I wouldn't try without very clear very reliable sources, in more than the local or college newspaper. On the precedent of schools, truly notable historic buildings may serve as a justification.
