Spotted this on Phil Bradley’s blog. Useful but rather depressing map of library cuts and closures in the UK. Seeing the cuts on this scale puts it all into perspective. Still not sure how cutting and closing public libraries fits with notions of the “information” or “knowledge” society that politicians (of all persuasions) say is where our future lies. Call me naive, but I would have thought libraries had an important part to play in creating that future.
