Education should always be at the forefront agenda of any government, and what could be a more important aspect to education than a healthy Library.

This is an act of cultural self-mutilation, and unbelievably shameful, as well as being a disaster for all those who value civilization and the study of the world's vast documentary and material patrimony. Annihilating the custodians of one of the UK's best research institutions will not solve the nation's self-inflicted economic and social problems, it will only hasten the spiral into barbarism.

Not only is this a short-sighted decision, it is an act of cultural vandalism at a time when the UK needs institutions which promote cross-cultural understanding more than ever.

My daughter, an M.A. student at SOAS, needs expert librarians for advice on research, not generalist.

This will be devastatingly destructive to a world class research institution. Get rid of the drain of useless administrators, not libraries and research staff.

I am signing because SOAS library is unique in the service it provides to its students and well beyond the university confines. Its librarians are not only experts but very helpful to researchers. I appreciated Jiyeon Wood' s efficient and kind expertise in processing my donations. Losing her would be a great disservice to SOAS library and would discourage further donations
