The British Library's Strategy 2008 - 2011

You can download and view the whole strategy (16 pages), or just read the summary (2 pages).

This is the culmination of work over several months during which we have identified the challenges which a great research library faces in the digital age and which will drive our plans for development over the next three years.

The new strategy builds on our 2005-2008 strategy, Redefining the Library, and focuses on what we consider to be our most significant priorities going forward. It reflects the British Library’s position as a successful public sector institution which underpins UK research competitiveness, supports UK business and provides a range of innovative services for the general public.

Details about what we will be focusing on in the coming year are set out in our Action Plan for 2009/10. See PDF files in the right-hand column.
