Development of a new quality framework for Welsh public libraries


June 2013 to March 2014

LISU was commissioned by CyMAL: Museums Archives and Libraries Wales, part of the Welsh Government, (now known as Museums Archives and Libraries Division [MALD]), to develop a new quality framework for Welsh public libraries. The project was led by LISU, in close collaboration with Dr Mark Hepworth, and follows on from an options appraisal of quality frameworks that Claire Creaser, Valérie Spezi and Mark Hepworth produced for CyMAL in March 2013.

The framework - Libraries making a difference: The fifth quality framework of Welsh Public Library Standards 2014-2017 - was implemented throughout Wales from April 2014.

LISU has subsequently been commissioned to develop a 6th framework, building on this work, to cover 2017 to 2020.
