The article reports on the proposal of Landscape Institute (LI) to transfer the library and archive to another organization to save money in Great Britain. LI chief executive Alastair McCapra states that the transfer to cheaper premises was due to the lost in advertising revenue and a doubling rent at its London, England headquarters. Meanwhile, Garden History Society chairman Dominic Cole is leading a campaign to ensure that the library and archive will remain with the LI.
