-Libraries systems appear to be one of the success stories of shared services in local government. There is a national shared service (for discovering books and resources) and by 2015 over a quarter of UK *Library* authorities (representing a higher share of councils) share a library system. Some like the [[:selms|]] consortium and The London Libraries Consortium are very large indeed. Some shared services, like the September 2015 contract for a library system for Wales, are national in scope. The Welsh initiative anticipates savings of 60-70%.+Libraries systems appear to be one of the success stories of shared services in local government. At July 2109 over 90 Library authorities (around 45%) were part of one kind of shared Library Management System (LMS) shared service. As many library authorities are already shared services it means that over half of the UK councils are in a shared LMS.

-====== ​  ​======+The recommendations paper, //**Digital Transformations for UK public libraries: five approaches to a ‘Single Digital Presence**// ​ ’ , sets out what a national online platform (or “single digital presence”) for public libraries could look like, what it could be used for and how such an offering might fit in with existing digital library systems.The British Library undertook a year-long enquiry to examine a range of options for such a platform and has identified five potential models that could enable public libraries to benefit fully from recent technological developments and to engage new and existing users at local and national level. These are:
  
-National ​Digital ​Platform for Wales [[http://​www.sell2wales.gov.uk/​search/​show/​Search_View.aspx?​id=DEC115290|contract award]]=+   - Deep Shared Infrastructure – a common, centralised Library Management System, procured at a UK wide level and run as a single piece of technology serving all libraries. Such interventions are rare at national level, though the Republic of Ireland has recently introduced such a system. 
 +  - UK wide Content Discovery – an aggregator at UK national level of free-to-view digital content from libraries, archives and other public collections. Example include Gallica in France, Trove in Australia, Finna in Finland and the Digital ​Public Library of America in the USA. 
 +  ​Unified Digital Lending – a single, publicly-run service devoted to the free digital ‘lending’ of books and other copyright content that would otherwise only be available on a commercial basisAn example is eReolen in Denmark. 
 +  - Safe Social Space – a user-led digital platform for the people who love libraries, replicating the community spaces they visit and work in as a complementary alternative to commercial social media servicesNo exact national equivalent currently exists, though emergent services such as Library Planet and Lit Hub offer analogies as digital places where library users and book lovers can gather and interact. 
 +  - One Library Brand – an intervention to create and promote a single ‘library brand’ at cross-UK scale: potentially applicable in both the digital and physical realms and consistent with any of the above propositions.
