Thanks logoMy thanks are due to their unfailingly helpful staffs, many of whom struggle to keep their collections available to us despite parsimonious funding and inadequate staffing levels.

Governments need to take urgent action to ensure the continued financial survival (and dare one say development) of these world renowned, and often long-established organisations, not all of which can be supported by charitable foundations.

Ordinary people use them, and need them.
