Libraries switch off wi-fi internet: Four libraries in Paris, France, have turned off their wi-fi internet connections after staff claimed they were causing health problems.
The latest to shut down its wireless network is the wireless Sainte-Genevieve university library in the 5th arrondissement after a member of staff threatened to take early retirement on health grounds.
The library has had wi-fi installed since the end of 2007. All computer users will now have to plug their laptops into the conventional fixed-line network.
