Essential Reading for Libraries and Museums

Arts Council England will take on the MLA’s remit for Museums and Libraries on 1 October 2011.  Baroness (Estelle) Morris of Yardley was asked to look at how its strategic framework for the arts could be revised to become a strategic framework for arts, libraries and museums.  Her final report is here.  Lots of sensible thoughts, but we most applaud her recommendation that there must be a single overarching goal for the cultural sector ‘…to realise its potential as an essential part of a civil and civilised society.  The narrative in this goal needs to emphasise active involvement and participation, partnership and engagement more than it does at the moment.’  Response from the Museums Association here (including a survey for their members) and interesting views in The Bookseller here.
