We’re now an Accredited Museum!

Librarian, Laura McVean, proudly displays our certificate of Accreditation

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.

Leading strategically, the MLA promotes best practice in museums, libraries and archives, to inspire innovative, integrated and sustainable services for all.

The Museums, Libraries and Archives Council is a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB), sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

    Congratulations to GWL – this is such good news and well deserved. Let’s work towards becoming Scotland’s national Women’s Library, Archive and Museum as soon as possible! The new home at the Mitchell Library is very fitting for such a unique organisation but it is vital that funding is raised to enable the building work to be completed. Glasgow should be proud to have this resource here – it’s the envy of many great cities both within and outwith the UK!

    This is just fantastic! Well done to Sue, Laura and Wendy (the librarians) and Hannah (the archivist) for all the hours of hard work they put in to this, onwards and upwards :)
