From Information World Report:

“This will focus on the immediate challenges faced by libraries in the current climate, and the LGG will identify a number of authorities for the Arts Council to support in implementing the ideas and best practice that came out of the original programme,” said ACE.


The document also offers general steers on the approach the Arts Council is taking, including that it is “keen to see museums and libraries continuing to innovate in their approaches to engaging with communities and making more effective use of volunteers” and that it sees “real opportunities to achieve economies of scale and greater impact where museums and libraries are . . . sharing their assets in collaboration with one another and with external partners”.
