Tales from the morgue

I see that a new Morgue Mama mystery is out. The Mama in question is Maddy Sprowls, an old-school newspaper librarian who gets up to all sorts of adventures whilst searching through old newspaper files (media libraries in the US are sometimes known as 'the morgue'). All very amusing and this review and this one seem to think it worth checking old Maddy out if only for novelty value.

Talk about reinforcing newspaper librarian stereotypes though...

Any suggestions for what to call UK media libraries?
