Update: Florida State Library and State Archives

We have reported here in February Gov. Jeb Bush’s budget proposal to dismantle the State Library of Florida and the State Archives and move the contents to other state departments.
Here is the latest information:
Right now, writes Pam Cooper on June 9 to me, almost all of the jobs in the State Library have been saved temporarily. The Archives lost about 8 people. We still have to be vigilant and watch every move that the Governor makes. We know that next year we could be facing the same problems. However, the Division of Historical Resources did not do so well. They have lost almost all of their funding in many of the grants. All of us who love history should be very worried.
More information about the case can be found in two messages from Jim Schnur (St. Petersburg, FL) in INETBIB (Message #1, message #2).
