'Libraries at Risk'

Podcast of a talk by Professor David McKitterick (Trinity College, Cambridge) on 'Libraries at Risk', delivered on 30 November 2010 as part of the History of Libraries seminar series of the Institute of English Studies, University of London. The talk has been made available through the Institute of Historical Research website.


'Several recent cases have drawn attention to the fragility of libraries as we know them - both large and small. In a world of changing attitudes to books, as well as perennial problems of cash shortage, how can library historians in particular contribute to a debate that will become even more urgent in the next few years?'
