Libris Minor

During the two centuries the Academica spent absent from Christendom, the covenant underwent significant decline. Many of the works that comprised its library remain lost in the ruins. When new magi came to inhabit the covenant, the covenfolk took pains to point out that the few works they had salvaged were a shadow of what no doubt remained to be found. The magi soon began to refer to the works at their disposal as the 'libris minor'.

Physical library

The library is housed in an extention to the Common Hall, built in the plain, unadorned style of the early Scottish monestaries. The books and other papers are stored in cabinets set into small alcoves. Several high windows provide plenty of light, and reading stands are spaced evenly around the room. The centre of the room contains a tiny scriptorum of three desks, plus a store of writing supplies.

A fireplace does exist to provide warmth, but Geoffrey the librarian typically forbids the lighting of fires except in the direst of circumstances. This has been the cause of more than one argument between the curmudgeonly man and Augusta Draca, whose constantly-burning laboratory forces her to come to this room to study.
