We have partially restructured the Digital Library. For most users things will not have changed too much, but please visit the site at your convenience, also given that a number of records have been added, for instance extending our ever growing collection of the classic journal Anarchy. The easiest way to find the new materials is to search for their document ID numbers, all starting with TOC0.
All in all the Digital Library now features 12,350 pages of awesome documents (in over 1,772 individual records)!
These updates are the early stages of a bigger project to restructure our cataloging system, which has become necessary as we have to cope with ever growing mounts of data. That will keep us for the next few months, but watch this space!

As part of Five Leaves Bookshop's upcoming Bread and Roses weekend at the end of November, Ruth Kinna is coming to talk about anarchism:
"What is this thing called anarchism? Chaos? Vegans with dogs-on string? Black-clad macho demonstrators or vague hippies? Ruth Kinna, author of Anarchism: a beginner’s guide, goes right to the heart of the ideology, explaining the influences that have shaped anarchism, and the tactics and strategies that anarchists have used to bring about their goals."
