It's very quiet here. Where's everyone gone?

It's been quite some time since my last post. That's because things here have been grim, very grim indeed.

We are in the midst of another tidal wave of redundancies.

This university is top of Britain's league table for axing staff. When I say 'top' I really mean top. Number One in the whole country. The only other thing we are doing well in is the Bullying & Harassment League.

Can you see a sort of pattern developing here?

When I began this blog in 2009 I thought I'd be discussing literature and libraries and other lovely things, but instead redundancy has been the recurring theme. 

Our library has become a barren and desolate place.

On the plus side, I am off on my holidays for the next two weeks - starting any minute now. Yippee!
