Egyptian librarians organize
After lots of bad news in recent posts, here's something much more uplifting: over 200,000 librarians, archivists, and information workers have unionized in Egypt. The development was a long time coming and was built on the efforts of information workers from all manner of libraries and archives as well as students in the field. Congratulations to our comrades in Egypt and solidarity in their struggle as workers!
