UKOLN welcomes the Empower, Inform, Enrich Report published by the DCMS in december 2009 as an initial stage in the development of new policy for public library services in the UK. A virtual library service will be an essential element in the modernisation process but it will be important to address the issues noted above and to learn from past mistakes and failures. Since a comprehensive plan will be needed, UKOLN has highlighted a number of areas which will need to be addressed and looks forward to seeing further work on the Library Review and chances to contribute in areas in which it has expertise.
