 "This report argues that a standards-based digital platform is the only viable technology for realising recent strategic goals articulated by leaders for England’s public libraries. The platform would allow libraries and their partners to innovate, collaborate and share in ways they cannot now do. The report further argues that the primary mode of service on this platform must be co-production – among library authorities,​ and among library staff, national and local partners, and importantly,​ end users. We show how new digital divides have made the mission of libraries – literacy, learning, and community inclusion – as relevant as it ever was. And that in order to provide an energetic response, libraries must invite their users into their digital spaces: their catalogues, their websites, their ebook readers, their online events calendars. We argue that these two measures, a standards-based digital platform and co-production of services, will reinvigorate libraries and create substantial,​ tangible outcomes in literacy, digital and social inclusion, health, education, and economic participation."​ "This report argues that a standards-based digital platform is the only viable technology for realising recent strategic goals articulated by leaders for England’s public libraries.

-March 2015: The Society of Chief Librarians is working to create a unified digital platform for public library resources aimed at increasing use of libraries by existing and potential customers "The Society of Chief Librarians (SCL) has begun work to envision a unified digital platform for all public libraries in England. This new digital platform for public libraries will improve how library customers can access, understand, and use the information and resources that libraries provide, including book catalogues, digital resources, IT training, events calendars, and library locations and opening hours. This web platform will help bring new users into public libraries, both virtually and physically, and enrich the library experience for existing customers.As a result of a public tender for the work, SCL appointed BiblioCommons,​ a Canadian company that works to transform how libraries serve communities online. The initial phase of the project, which is funded by a £30,000 grant from Arts Council England, will research consumer and library sector needs and create a vision and roadmap for the unified digital platform. Work on stage 1 is expected to complete at the end of March 2015."+March 2015: The Society of Chief Librarians is working to create a [[https://​www.bibliocommons.com/​news/​2015/​3/​5/​bibliocommons-working-with-the-society-of-chief-librarians-to-develop-plan-for-unified-digital-platform-for-public-libraries-in-england|unified digital platform]] ​for public library resources aimed at increasing use of libraries by existing and potential customers "The Society of Chief Librarians (SCL) has begun work to envision a unified digital platform for all public libraries in England.
