The Harvard University Library Executive Director Helen Shenton just announced a plan to restructure the Harvard library system and make it more efficient and high-tech.

TODAY: Rally for Workers' Rights, 4pm, Holyoke Center

Friends,

Join us today at 4:00 p.m. in solidarity with workers as we rally to voice our opposition to many of the recent cutbacks. We will gather in front of the Holyoke Center to reaffirm our commitment to those members of our community hit hardest by recent administrative decisions and let Harvard know that the campaign for transparency, dialogue, and alternative solutions to layoffs and injurious cutbacks has not been buried by the summer months. If the following issues speak to you, it is important that you attend this rally.
