British Library Readers' Group
- I imagine that many readers of this group use the British Library,
and perhaps especially its manuscript department. Following the
announcement that the government intends to prune its $200m budget
by up to 7%, a group to represent readers at the BL was set up in
"The British Library Readers Group is made up of academics,
students, journalists, independent scholars, researchers and writers
who are readers at the British Library. We have come together to
meet one another and to represent readers to the administration and
trustees of the British Library.
"Our aim is to seek constructive solutions to issues that have an
impact upon our working lives in the library."
I know that I have always felt that I was sometimes one unimportant
man against a vast institution. If you have ever felt the same,
please join the group.
All the best,
