State library won’t go to NSU

“State lawmakers on Friday killed Gov. Jeb Bush’s controversial plan to move the State Library’s circulating collection to Nova Southeastern University, ending a quest that would have vastly enhanced the Broward school’s research collection with one stroke.”

“House members, without objection, approved a budget amendment from Rep. Bev Kilmer, R-Marianna, that stripped any funding from the House budget proposal for 2003-04 to move the library.”

“So ends a proposal that would have made the NSU library a top destination for government researchers and academia. The Davie campus was poised to acquire a unique 350,000-volume collection rich with books that serve the needs of government and social science.” (from The Maimi Herald)
