I just saw this today (written by a UK MP): Library closures. Is that so bad?

It makes the case for library closure on a purely cost-effectiveness basis, which doesn't seem all that unreasonable if the foot traffic in public libraries is dwindling at the rate stated.
I wonder if the same is happening in US libraries?

Very interesting blog post at the Unilever Centre for Molecular Informatics (Cambridge): Elsevier replies about hybrid #openacess; I am appalled about their practices. Breaking licences and having to pay to read “Open Access”
This is a long post with lots of hyperlinks, so may take a few minutes to read.

Looks like Elsevier may have shot themselves in the foot.
