This blog is a place for staff from the DCMS Libraries team to share insights into their work.

To find out more about our superintendence role read the guidance on Libraries as a statutory service.

We intend to share news about the superintendence process, plus work to ensure libraries continue to feature in government strategies. We’ll share information about funding opportunities, libraries policy work, and examples of where the work done in libraries features in government speeches and reports. We’ll sometimes feature guest blogs which illustrate these issues.

If you would like to contribute a guest post, please contact us at

We want these blogs to be a genuine sharing of ideas, so we will read the comments you post here and respond to the debate.
