The article examines issues faced by providers of resources for labor history, and issues for the users in Great Britain. Acquisitions budgets had been slashed in both national and local institutions, in some cases almost to non-existence. It was additionally alarming, therefore, to hear Chris Wrigley's report of depositors being charged by some record offices for the privilege of placing their collections there. A further consequence of the cut-backs that had been experienced in recent years was that staff shortages were affecting all areas of activity among the providers of resources. The problems facing the providers of resources therefore had twofold implications for the users. Not only access to the sources available but also the collection and preservation of the sources in the first place were under threat. Another response to financial problems was the imposition of charges for readers.
