Library brought to book over loss of Scots section

The LOC has announced that the past 700 years of Scottish literature will no longer have its own section. The National Library of Scotland has urged it to reconsider the decision and the culture minister has vowed to raise the matter with the US Congress.

Under the new rules, the heading Scottish Literature and more than 40 Scottish subjects are to be grouped under three headings.
