Calling all Wormers,

Here is the info going around regarding the closing of the SIO Library requesting support of the scientific community.  Please sign the petition.


Hello Marine Scientists and friends,

Please see the email below from Linsey Sala at Scripps.  If you value the library at Scripps, please take the time to participate in the survey and sign the petition!  You can email her (or me) with your name and affiliation to "sign".  Feel free to distribute this email to others!  Thanks for your time!  

Due to a major budget deficit, UCSD is seriously considering closing down the library at Scripps Institution of Oceanography along with several other libraries associated with the University.  If you have ever used, will ever use, or know anyone who does, will, has, or are just a fan, please please take a moment to sign our petition and take the quick survey (see the link below).   We will need all the help we can get to not lose some of the oldest oceanographic archives in our history.  The petition is attached and you can email your name and affiliation directly to lsala from ucsd.edu to "sign". 

Thanks so much for any time you put towards this and feel free to pass it on!

Please help us gather information on SIO library use by taking this short survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/99PVB5M

Those DOIs seem to be faulty apart from the last one on Scripps.

Try starting at the journal issue http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v471/n7336/index.html
