Just finished putting the words "This service will end on June 30, 2010 if the proposed budget cuts are approved" or "This service may end on June 30, 2010 if the proposed budget cuts are approved" next to the links to all of the online databases our patrons (and we librarians) will or might lose access to if the current hatin'-on-libraries-and-schools NJ state budget passes.
Literally, scores of databases. Virtually every one we now offer. If the budget goes through, we'd be lucky if we could hang on to a tenth of what we now offer.
Extremely depressing to contemplate.
And that's just the databases this budget would strip from us. Which is just the tip of the iceberg.
We included this link. I hope enough people kick up a fuss to get this thing changed.
