Law Library Of Congress Financial Woes

Norman Oder of Library Journal reports that the Law Library of Congress has fiscal troubles. The Law Library has canceled at least $200,000 worth of subscriptions due to their increased costs, and further that funds need to be raised in order to reclassify approximately 675,000 volumes over the next ten years (over one-quarter of the Law Library’s collection).

Oder’s article goes on to discuss the wisdom of a proposed statutory change that would give the Law Library its own line item.
