National Library of Scotland Releases 2020–2025 Strategy (Draft)

From the National Library of Scotland:

A public consultation has begun to gather comments on the draft National Library of Scotland strategy for 2020-2025.

The National Library sets out its aims in a consultation document which outlines how the organisation sees itself looking in 2025.

As well as strategic priorities, the document reveals the Library’s plans to reach new audiences and re-shape services.


The strategy will set out how we plan to reach new audiences, shape our digital services to suit your needs, and take the national collections to locations beyond Edinburgh and Glasgow.

While retaining our reputation as a sanctuary for study and research, we also have plans to redevelop our George IV Bridge building in Edinburgh. Our aim is to create a more welcoming and invigorating place for people to visit — tailored for audiences of all ages and interests.
