The Brief

Single Digital Presence for Public Library Services

A single digital presence could provide public libraries with the opportunity to revisit the core library mission and thinking about how it can be better delivered, opening up new opportunities and possibilities for service and user alike. The British Library is leading on a period of analytic and strategic development of a single digital presence for public libraries. This work is supported by Arts Council England and the Carnegie UK Trust.

The mid-programme report exploring what a new online platform (or “single digital presence”) for public libraries in the UK could look like, what it could be used for, how such an offer might fit in with existing digital library systems and recommendations for strategic development is available here.
