Information is the Lifeblood of Parliament: Visiting the House of Commons Library

Every year, the House of Commons Library holds an Open Day for library and information professionals from around the UK. It’s a chance to look behind the scenes at the library which supplies MPs with research and information they need to do their job as parliamentarians. The 2020 open day was held at the Palace of Westminster on the 19th of February, which seems like a very long time ago.

The morning session covered aspects of the parliamentary library services and the future of the House of Commons Library. The afternoon offered a tour of the Palace of Westminster and the Members’ Library. It was a fascinating day and I am delighted to share it with you!
