A Letter in Support of the NEH, IMLS and NHPRC From the Directors of Independent Research Libraries
A letter from the directors of several important independent research libraries appears in full on The Iris (a Blog from The Getty in Los Angeles).
From the Letter:
Independent research libraries preserve books, manuscripts and other precious materials that sustain the national conversation about who we are as Americans and also who we have been. As directors of these libraries, we have direct experience of the impact of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) on the work we do with scholars and our communities.
