Saturday 5th February is 'Save Our Libraries Day', a day of action to bring the planned library cuts and closures to the public's attention - see CILIP's dedicated info page to see how you can participate. Do something before it's too late!
For a neat overview of the week's history headlines, check out the BBC's HistoryExtra blog. There are some unusual items to catch up on, including the accidental discovery of a 20ft mural of Henry VIII, and the sale of a locket of Nelson's hair.
