On March 29th, 2012, the federal government tabled a budget that set into motion budget cutbacks and even the outright closure of many Federal departmental, Crown Corporation, Advisory Body and Non-Profit Organization libraries. Over the course of 2012 and early 2013, Carleton University Library engaged with nineteen libraries in the Ottawa area in an effort to rescue print and electronic collections.  This poster session would like to visually recount the successes, the partial successes, as well as the not so happy endings.
