Letter: Partners key to libraries' future (2)

July 27, 2001

It is depressing at the beginning of the 21st century to read an article suggesting that the British Library should cater only for the intellectual elite.

Information should be available to anyone who wishes to consult it. I am sure that if a query were more suited to another library the reader would be re-directed.

Perhaps David Wells would prefer a bouncer on the door checking academic credentials before admitting people to their library.
