Smell of the library
We’ve all been to historic library, we’ve all enjoyed the smell of these historic library. But what is it and what does it mean? When we recently been to the youth center of sustainable heritage, we’ve been asked to assess the environment at another historic library. As in St. Paul cathedral, the Rein library, an incredible place, and it has such intensive smell of old books. And we were also asked for the first time really, (mumble), we were asked whatever you do, please preserve the smell. It’s so important to our audience, so important how people perceive the (stutter) library. So that was quite an important message in our research. And indeed, the smell is an important way of how we communicate with the environment. This piece of research was done by an advertising company, because advertisers are so interested in how we interact with each other and the environment. And we see that a majority of people use sight obviously, to interact with environment. But on the second phase, we see that smell is also very, very important. It is also a very, very interesting sense, I will talk a bit about it later. Hearing is obviously very important. All three of those (mumble) represent how we interact with heritage environments. We look at things, we smell things, we hear cracking walls and floors, interestingly, taste is also off there somewhere. We don’t get to taste Monalisa very often, but I will just tell you that in a science café, I was involved in a couple of years ago in Norway, when I spoke about Syndic paper, it took a second for somebody in the first row to try tasting it, to see if it can actually be tasted.
