The Inclusive Libraries Project began in March 2009 and is due to be completed in March 2010. The practical outcome from the project has been the development of two inclusive public libraries in Birmingham. The libraries have bought new technology, books and other resources, and they have run projects for groups of people with learning disabilities from the local area. At the end of the project, there will also be a training DVD and booklet for other public libraries and learning disability services. The research design has enabled the researchers to survey public libraries in the Midlands and other parts of the country and then conduct action research with the two libraries. Data are being collected mainly through observations and interviews.
