Digital Transformation for UK Public Libraries: Five Approaches to a ‘Single Digital Presence’ published jointly by the British Library, Arts Council England and the Carnegie UK Trust explores what a new online platform (or “single digital presence”) for public libraries in the UK could look like, what it could be used for and how such an offer might fit in with existing digital library systems.

Based on in-depth research the report identifies and assesses five potential options for a new digital platform for libraries. These options reflect a range of considerations including: desirability, complexity, feasibility and ease of implementation.
