The Bottom Line

ISSN: 0888-045X

Publication date: 1 March 1992


A GREAT deal of recent library news has been about money: rising prices, budget cuts, staff cuts; generally, the call to do more with less. Sometimes citizen protest or the recognition that reduced library services harm everyone has managed to turn the tide. Mostly, however, libraries and librarians have simply bowed to pressure and tried yet again to stretch their budgets. As Barbara Moran said, “even in the sixties libraries never overcame their traditional poverty” (Academic Libraries, 1984, p. 25). Now, when information sources are multiplying and the cost of accessing information is escalating, those already inadequate budgets are being reduced once again.
