'The Library provides services to a global and diverse market, and it is therefore very important to ensure that we are meeting the needs and expectations of our many service users and our workforce.

This year, the HR Team has focused on developing both service diversity and employment initiatives on a range of policy areas. Specifically, we have developed an age policy, disability and gender equality schemes and, in preparation for the opening of Sacred, we have developed religious and belief guidelines in consultation with our local community faith leaders.

Through this work, we have driven a broad cultural change in gaining greater commitment and accountability from our stakeholders in recognising the importance of diversity and also gaining greater recognition as an employer and service provider of choice.'
