Results of the ‘glove’ poll

The ‘glove’ poll has been closed and the results are in. It’s almost neck and neck with nitrile gloves (29%) vs cotton gloves (26%).

Results of the glove poll

Close behind was “Other answer” with comments including:

  • clean hands policy, cotton or nitrile gloves when viewing some formats
  • When using photos or rare books
  • Only when handling photos or metal items
  • depends on fragility of material i.e. clean hands in this case otherwise nitrile
  • When photos or metal is handled; for paper no gloves are required

It appears that the traditional cotton style has been slowly overtaken by the disposable nitrile variety.

Until the next poll…

    Bit surprised that cotton gloves ranked so highly, we are nitrile gloves users!
