Libraries at the Heart of Learning

UNISON represents more than 20,000 library staff in a wide variety of settings. Our members work in libraries and learning resource centres in schools, colleges and universities across the UK, as well as in the more visible public library service.

UNISON knows that libraries are at the heart of learning, but this isn’t widely felt or fully appreciated by decision-makers.

The best of educational settings place a high value on their library and information service. They understand it is a hallmark of their excellence. But too often, short-sighted decision-makers are closing and cutting services and skimping on stock and staff. This is usually driven by financial expediency and in ignorance of the impact of their actions.
