Abstract

Reviews the events of the last 12 months concerning the British Library and its move to St Pancras. Considers two official reports which comment adversely on the management and planning of the new building. Discusses the pressures from readers′ groups to retain the Round Reading Room, and notes fears that the computerized retrieval and delivery systems at St Pancras are untried and will prove inadequate.
