Cheers to you for preserving the records!
"A process of deaccessioning is now under way. This will reduce the library to a core collection, remove material that relates to cataloguing, libraries and other non-indexing subjects, and weed out duplicate copies. Items no longer required will be offered for sale to SI members, before other avenues for disposal, such as `Book Aid' schemes and second-hand booksellers, are investigated. ... After this, the library will ... move to a new home at Oxford Brookes University, a centre for publishing education."
Utterly deplorable, I call it.
Should anything about it be put on Indexer's Network?

I saw Harrod's "Indexers on Indexing" on your wish list. I have a copy that was given to me by BevAnne Ross. It is full of her notations. She used the book as the basis for the first USDA book indexing course. She even marked up the index!
