The British Library Releases 2016-2017 Annual Report, London: National Libraries, [e-Book 2017]
El 44º Informe Anual de la The British Library 2016 – 2017
In a year of dramatic events on the global stage, we are proud that this has been an exceptional year for advancing the Library’s international purpose, working with partners around the world to advance knowledge and mutual understanding.
Our cultural engagement in China is unprecedented in its depth and breadth, most vividly illustrated with the signing of an exhibition agreement with the National Library of China at 2016’s UK-China High Level People to People Dialogue in Shanghai. Some of the Library’s most iconic objects, including an early Shakespeare Quarto, will star in exhibitions across China through to 2019. The initiative was launched to acclaim at both the National Library of China in Beijing and here in London, where we were joined by the Chinese Ambassador to the UK.
