Future of Queen's University Law Library in Doubt?

According to the Queens' Journal, the future of the law library at Kingston-based Queen's University is uncertain because of budget cuts.

Head Law Librarian Nancy McCormack is quoted in the most recent issue of the publication as saying:

" 'One of the threats is that we may lose more staff and become the library with the lowest number of personnel in Canada,' she said. 'I think there comes a point at which you can’t operate a library anymore … there’s this number below which you just can’t go because you can’t keep the doors open anymore.' "
16 library staff positions have been cut since 2004-05 and more cuts are expected.
