The complaint of the subject librarian at Bangor University about its service being reduced to the level of a further education college is revealing in its ignorance ("Librarians under threat", February 11).
Library services in further education have led the way in providing a high level of service and value for money. We have had to redesign our role to meet the changing expectations of external agencies and local users.
University library services have been relatively slow to respond to the changing information needs of users. Rather than denigrating another branch of the same service, they should learn from it.
