If, like me, you’re following the stories of cuts to archives, local studies and other special collections in UK local authorities, check out Action4Archives.  The group, which includes historians, academics, and other archive users, began as a response to serious cuts at The National Archives, but are now campaigning to help other threatened archive services.  I found their twitter account particularly useful today for updates about the Hammersmith and Fulham archive service.  This is due, so we hear to close on 28 February, though the situation is changing fast: the latest news suggests that a merger of three services may take place.
