(5 January 2015) ‘The power of our network’ is the slogan that accompanies the KB Strategic Plan 2015-2018. It is published on the eve of a drastic change, the implementation of the Public Library Provisions System Act (Wsob) on 1 January 2015.
Under this act, the KB (National Library of the Netherlands) will play a central role in the field of public libraries too, something it has been doing for years in terms of scholarly information provision. The KB will now be able to fully live up to its title of ‘national library’.
The strategic priorities for 2015-2018 are: 1. To realise the national digital library 2. Reinforcing national and international cooperation.
