Hard Times Ahead for the Library of Birmingham | Information Science | Scoop.it
The award-winning Library of Birmingham (LB), which garnered applause and approval across the U.K. when it was built in 2013, is about to fall on hard times. After opening to great fanfare a little over a year ago, the library has been finding it hard to keep up with costs, citing a lack of private sponsorship and the Birmingham City Council’s (BCC) failure to raise promised money from land sales. Then at the end of 2014 the BCC announced a round of austerity measures that will cut some £72 mill
Afroditi Fragkou's insight:

The fact that a library is new or modern doesn't ensure its present nor its future.
