National Digital Promise for Public Libraries (UK)

The Society of Chief Librarians has announced a National Digital Promise for public libraries in Wales, England and Northern Ireland that will set the standard for digital access in libraries. This Promise sets a minimum standard of digital resources available in the more than 4000 libraries across the UK. Key promises made in the National Digital Promise include:

* free access to the internet in every library (for a minimum period)
* 24/7 access to a virtual library online
* library staff trained to help people to go online
* the ability to join a library online, and much more
