Birmingham Libraries Policies
Stock Management Policy
Birmingham aims to provide the opportunity for everyone to access learning, information and cultural expression through written print, audio, visual and interactive resources and technologies.
A coherent, consistent policy is essential in order to manage stock effectively, assist collection development and continue to meet customer needs. This interim Stock Retention Policy updates previous policies and provides a framework for individual service area policies and procedures in preparation for the Library of Birmingham.
The aims of Birmingham Archives & Heritage service are:
• To collect and preserve the historic records of the City of Birmingham, its people, businesses and institutions
• To make these records available for research to the public
• To promote the use of archives to support learning, citizenship and community identities
Access Policy Statement
All libraries encourage access for everyone. We will promote the service widely and remove barriers that prevent people from using the service.
