Library Cuts Threaten Research

[quote] In Louisiana, librarians panicked this summer when the state Board of Regents announced the end of funding for LOUIS, the statewide academic library network that provides journal and database access to some 30 institutions, including Louisiana State University (LSU). On a Facebook page dedicated to saving LOUIS, students and faculty alike expressed their outrage at the loss of access. "Oh, please please please save LOUIS," wrote one LSU graduate psychology student. "I'm funded by a large federal research grant from the Department of Education. We need to prove we have adequate research resources in order to secure funding.... I need the EBSCO databases like I need air or water!" [end quote]
