The National Library of Scotland launched its new strategy today (29 September).
'Reaching People: Library Strategy 2020-2025', identifies five key priorities for the next five years, with a strong focus on outstanding digital engagement with existing library users and new audiences. The priorities are:
- Safeguarding collections
- Improving access
- Engaging audiences
- Supporting learning, research and discovery
- Developing the organisation.
Among its new objectives, the Library aims to offer greater personalisation of online services for Scottish residents by its centenary in 2025.
Publication of the strategy follows a record-breaking increase in the number of visits to the Library's websites and digital collections over the past six months.
