Consultation on National Library of Scotland

The Scottish Government has announced a public consultation on a forthcoming National Library of Scotland Bill. The aim is to modernise the founding legislation of the NLS, including its powers, functions and governance arrangements. The proposals will suggest that:

• The 'functions and powers' of the Library should be defined in law
• The NLS Board of Trustees be substantially reduced from the current 32 Trustees
• Subject to restrictions safeguarding its functions, NLS should be subject to ministerial powers of direction.

For more information visit www.nls.uk/about/trustees/nls-bill-consultation.html. The consultation ends of June 23rd 2010.
