More information and news coverage on closing of science libraries…..

Huffington Post, Jan. 3, 2013, has coverage and more information the closing of the science libraries, see “How the Harper Government Committed a Knowledge Massacre” :

“Scientists are calling it “libricide.” Seven of the nine world-famous Department of Fisheries and Oceans [DFO] libraries were closed by autumn 2013, ostensibly to digitize the materials and reduce costs. But sources told the independent Tyee in December that a fraction of the 600,000-volume collection had been digitized. And, a secret federal document notes that a paltry $443,000 a year will be saved.”
