More on University of Saskatchewan Library Closures

This is a follow-up to the Library Boy post of May 11, 2014 called Canadian Association of Law Libraries Response to Closure of University of Saskatchewan Law Library.

Annette Demers, President of the Association (CALL), wrote a letter to the Acting Dean, University of Saskatchewan Library, to criticize the decision to consolidate the university's library system, which will include shutting the law library.

The CALL website has reprinted Demers' letter.

The same web page also includes an endorsement of the CALL position by the Saskatchewan Library Association:
"As an association we feel strongly about the important place that librarians play in legal education in our province and we call on the University of Saskatchewan to take actions that ensure that the important place the Law Library plays in the education of lawyers, the study of law and the building of the professional community be protected."
And at the bottom of the page, there is a link to a clarifying statement from the University of Saskatchewan Dean of Law and Dean of the University Library.
