NSW State Library reductions

Someone wrote in about yet another sory on reduction in library services. This one at one of the major research libraries in Australia. The article is from the Sydney Morning Herald.\"The number of users who visited the buildings on Macquarie Street had dropped by 21 per cent in the past three years to a million a year. At the same time, Web access has increased more than 16-fold to 14 million. \"It\'s a shift of the way services are delivered by the library,\" the spokesman said.

Haiku archive blossoming at state library

Have a look Here. From the Contra Costa Times.

In the basement of the California State Library, among
historical archives on everything from bandits to the Gold Rush, sits an unlikely collection of art -- haiku art.

In fact, it\'s the nation\'s official haiku archive, and it\'s growing, despite the fact that a couple of Ivy League schools think Northern California is an odd place to house it.
