Our future collecting strategy
The British Library’s content strategy –
Meeting the Knowledge Needs of the
Nation - outlined our proposals for what information resources we should collect and connect to in future, in order to meet the needs of UK research.
‘It is extremely encouraging that the British Library is engaging in such a thorough consultation exercise on this crucial issue’, said Professor Michael Worton (above), Vice Provost of University College London.
Responses came from most research disciplines served by the Library and gave us an insight into areas of support and concern. There was particular support for greater focus on materials from China, India and anglophone Africa.
