Abstract

This report presents some of the key findings of a research project, funded by the British Library Research and Innovation Centre, which investigated the provision of European Union information in UK public libraries. The project focused, in particular, on the implementation of the Public Information Relay (PIR) - a European Commission initiative designed to bring European Union information closer to the British public through the existing public library network. This chapter presents findings from a survey of 117 public library authorities in the PIR network, and a survey of 372 users of the public libraries in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Moray.
