Libraries - the value of just in case, not just in time

Ruth Bird, the Director of Bodleian Law Library, University of Oxford wrote a great article on the risks of “losing too much as the materialism of ‘value’ replaces the experience of unquantifiable practice and purpose”.

This is particularly of interest as many law libraries seek to promote their value and usefulness in a time where constant budget watching often means that libraries are being closed.  The complete article can be found here.
