Women's Library campaign gathers steam with 5,000-strong petition
The library, part of London Metropolitan University, is threatened with drastically reduced opening hours unless a new home, owner or sponsor can be found by December. The university is trying to save £1m a year across its two special collections, the Women's Library and the Trades Union Congress Library. Its board of governors has said that, if a new home or owner cannot be found, the Women's Library's opening hours will be reduced from five days a week to a skeleton service of just one day a week from the end of 2012.
