Library cutting $600,000 and two positions from its budget
by JORDYN DAHL

Amid cross-university cuts due to a deepening budget crisis, the Morgan Library will reduce its budget by $600,000 and eliminate two positions.

Other changes include a test trial of eBooks that students can access using their eID and password. Administrators’ hope is to reduce the amount of money spent on unused books and make research more convenient for students.

Burns said this move is in preparation for when publishers stop printing books altogether.
