Our changing context
To gain an understanding of what the world might look like in 2020, we interviewed experts from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors spanning research, learning, publishing, information and technology.
We established a Consultative Panel of researchers and key stakeholders, including members of the British Library Board and Advisory Council and we consulted widely with Library staff.
This interaction provided a rich tapestry of information about the future environment and what it might mean for us. We are indebted to our colleagues for their significant contribution to the development of our 2020 vision.
We extended these insights by conducting research into the Library’s future internal and external operating environment.
