MASS SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN TO SAVE OLD NEWSPAPER SECTION IN ESPLANADE

1) The old newspaper copies which were taken away previously for microfilming should be returned back with proper lamination to the old newspaper section at Esplanade with soft copies in DVD's.

2)Further dispatch of copies for microfilming & preservation should be enacted only after fulfillment of the point no 1. ( We have noticed the authority have damaged a lot and dumped the copies of previous copies taken away from old section).

3)The old newspaper section in Esplanade must continue.

(Because it is

  ---centrally located and easily accessible via public transport

  --- physically challenged persons can not access the new newspaper section

      located in the upstairs

 ---safe for the women readers. )

Signed,

The old newspaper reading room at the National Library at 6 Esplanade East has the legacy of housing

---Public Library from 1836

---Imperial Library from 1903.

This section has been renamed as the National Library & shifted to Alipore in 1948. But the old newspaper section remained at the same location for readers convenience.

Now this old newspaper section is decided by the authority to be shifted to Alipore which will detriment  the interest of readers and research scholars.

We want to continue this heritage unit at its mother place at Esplanade.
