Occultes flashes a grin and says "Ah, sodalis, I'm afraid that I can answer questions about the past, but not about the present or future. Andrus is the librarian now, and has been for many years. Only he can answer you on this issue."
Andrus clears his throat, casting one more alarmed look at Murion -- who, incidentally, looks displeased at the question.
"Sodales, I am not completely clear what "up to scratch" means, but the Great Library is already a beacon of light for the dissemination of magical knowledge throughout the Order. Our collection is the greatest in the Order; we are, in fact, the only covenant trying to maintain a copy of every (worthy) text ever written. Magi come from the furthest reaches of the world to visit us -- we have more than a dozen as guests even now. And our scriptorium is constantly working to produce more copies for our sodales.
This is a truly titanic task, and I can testify that from the inside it looks even more titanic than from the outside. Even though we gladly dedicate our lives to it -- for such is our oath -- I admit it strains our resources, and any offer of help, vis, or texts we do not have are greatly appreciated.
I would point out, however, that unlike what our accusers say, we never request payment, save a symbolic reimbursement for the costs of hospitality and/or scribing. All we ask is that, should someone benefit from the knowledge of the Library, that someone should add to the knowledge of the Library, for the benefit of the Order rather than that of Durenmar. And even then, we often assist our sodales even when they cannot contribute. For example, a group of newly gauntleted magi who set up a new covenant in the Rhine a few decades ago received copies of numerous priceless texts as gifts, and unrestricted access to our library for their spring years. Of course, resources being scarce as they are, we have to strike a fine balance between being fair to all, and privileging those who help us provide even better service to the rest of the Order."
