I would like to draw to the attention of all forum members some rather worrying developments at the Imperial War Museum.
The museum has made a bizarre, and, frankly, disgraceful decision to close its library and make all library staff redundant as one of their proposed cuts to meet a £4M deficit.
If you feel it appropriate, I would ask you to support the petition below, in the hope that this goes some way towards changing the mind of the management. They are doing their best to keep this story out of the news at the moment (IWM staff have been threatened with instant dismissal if they talk to the press), although the information has already reached The Bookseller website yesterday afternoon. This has serious implications for anyone wishing to conduct any research into military history! Please go online and sign.
I've modified my post... the link doesn't work. type the following into your search engine....
