What Happens When We All Downsize at the Same Time?

From Sarah Sutherland's post at yesterday called Where Will Old, Expensive, or Unexpected Legal Information Come From When Libraries All Downsize Together?:
"(...) decisions are being made regarding whether materials will be maintained as ongoing current subscriptions, discontinued but kept, or discarded, based on the holdings of other institutions. Private law libraries look to courthouse libraries, courthouse libraries look to university libraries, university libraries look to each other, and everyone looks to the Supreme Court of Canada Library. The problem is that it seems budgetary pressures are being felt at all levels of the chain, and these decisions are being made without consultation."
