Global Reach


UNITED KINGDOM 1

A clear strategy is needed if more libraries are to adopt e-lending across England, Culture Minister Ed Vaizey said September 26 as he launched a review of the best ways to make ebooks available on loan to the public. Vaizey has asked William Sieghart, founder of Forward Publishing, to lead a review of e-lending to help ensure that libraries, readers, authors, and publishers can all benefit as the service grows.--UK Department for Culture, Media, and Sport, Sept. 26.

SWEDEN 2

Following a storm of media criticism, officials at the Kulturhuset library in Stockholm have reversed their decision to remove Tintin comic books from the shelves, saying the move happened "too fast." The reversal comes after a newspaper report in which Artistic Director Behrang Miri said the library planned to remove Tintin comics from its shelves because of their racial stereotyping of Africans, Arabs, and Turks. Tintin was created by Belgian artist Georges Remi.--The Local, Sept. 25; Dagens Nyheter, Sept. 25.

BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA 3

Twenty years after it was burned down by Serbian shelling during the Bosnian War, the former National Library building in Sarajevo regained some of its former glory as workers completed the refurbishment of its facade October 3, marking the end of the third phase of its reconstruction. The collections will return when the restoration is completed in 2014.--Balkan Insight, Oct. 4.

INDIA 4

One of India's oldest libraries is facing closure after government funding was withdrawn. Old Delhi's Hardayal Municipal Public Library houses one of the country's finest collections of rare antiquarian books. But today the building is dilapidated, its books are caked in dust, and their pages are slowly disintegrating in rooms without air conditioning. A campaign to save the library has been launched with the support of some of India's leading writers and scholars.
