Dear all (sent to a bcc list),

While this is not directly geospatial related, some of our friends

would be interested in the following --

Please save the British Library
Tessa throws good money after very bad

On a tangential but related note, I was thinking, libraries have given
out all kinds of data -- I get movies, music, even paintings, besides
the usual magazines, books, and papers -- but they could serve as
outlets for spatial data and geospatial education packages as well.
