What's the Issue?
By May, the Library of Congress's European Reading Room could be no more. This exquisite facility has been the home for graduate students, foreign visitors, and world-class researchers of all types. It is staffed by some of the best reference professionals and materials available, and is one-of-a-kind worldwide. Losing it would damage not only American students but would be a slap in the face of our European colleagues who come to the U.S. to study -- in recognition of the immense value of the Library of Congress. No other reading room is on the chopping block. Those who value American-European cultural exchange and the Library of Congress's role in it need to make their voices heard NOW.
