Extractions: home professional info policy documents Submission 1 Libraries are possibly the most influential and well-used cultural institutions we have, yet they have one of the lowest profiles. Their impact (both present, and potential) on both individuals and society is often underestimated compared with organisations with a higher political profile, but a lesser influence. This impact affects everyone's lives from pre-school to adult learning and from individuals who just want to find something out, to humanistic, scientific and industrial research at the highest level.

It is essential that the Commission acknowledges the actual and potential role of academic and institutional libraries in Scotland, as well as the National and public libraries. Together, institutional and academic libraries have a wealth of historic treasures and specialist information which ultimately belongs in a moral sense to the people of Scotland. This is a valuable, but much-overlooked part of Scotland's cultural heritage which should not only be recognised but also better co-ordinated and made more accessible. 4. In relation to the overall national collections (i.e. including these distributed resources as well as those housed in the national institutions themselves), the National Library sees itself as having a key long-term role in:
