We are very proud to announce that Glasgow Women’s Library has been awarded full status as an Accredited Museum by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council. This means that we meet nationally agreed standards on collections care, museum management and the provision of information and services to visitors.
This is great news because it is another step towards us becoming a named and recognised national resource for women’s history, culture and information in Scotland.
We are delighted to now be part of a wider network of over 1800 museums across the UK who partake in the MLA’s Accreditation Scheme.
