Faculty win fight to preserve Berkeley libraries

“Close lots of library locations on campus, or close fewer and see services reduced at most of the remaining locations. Faced with those options in light of a budget crunch, the faculty at the University of California at Berkeley aid no to both and set out to find alternative funding sources to save the library — all 25 locations. While the university’s main library complex, referred to as Doe/Moffitt, was never in danger, professors wanted to preserve the smaller reading spaces housing specialized collections — and the librarians who know them intimately.” (via Inside Higher Ed)
