We wrote to the University Librarian about our campaign (see letter to Librarian) and received a very positive response. The University Library is helping us gather data about provision at other institutions. They have also shown us a plan for improving journal access here by pooling departmental resources.
Further developments will be posted here as the campaign progresses.
