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. She plans to fund this by laying off some workers and restructuring the jobs of others. She threatened to cut jobs by “voluntary and involuntary means,” and terrified library workers by refusing to provide details about the plan and recommending that they upload their resumes online.

Deans Host Townhall on Harvard's Budget

Last night Dean of the Faculty of the Arts and Sciences Michael Smith and Dean of the College Evelyn Hammonds hosted a townhall students for questions about the budget. SLAM members showed up en force, handed out flyers, and managed to ask six out of the nine total questions. While we applaud Deans Smith and Hammonds for holding this townhall for students, they did not present a clear picture of what budget cuts would come. The Crimson article about the event is here.

May Day!


Earlier today dozens of Harvard workers joined the immigrant rights protest at noon in front of the Science Center.
