NPG Library Committee

The purpose of the NPG Library Committee is to discuss pertinent and interesting issues and developments in today's library market. Once a year, NPG staff and committee members meet to share views and experiences from library communities around the world, and apply them to the context of advancing NPG's site license products, policies and services. Members are also contacted throughout the year.
