Chetham's Library awarded Full Museum Accreditation


We are very happy to have been awarded Fully Accredited Museum Status as part of Arts Council England’s newly updated national Accreditation Scheme. This has involved a lot of hard work from Library staff and we are delighted to have been rewarded in this way. There are currently just under 1800 museums participating in the Accreditation Scheme, which sets nationally agreed standards for museums in the UK, defining good practice and standards and helping museums to be the best they can be. In addition to this, the Library’s entire holdings are also Designated as a collection of national importance under ACE’s Designation Scheme, representing a fantastic achievement for an institution of our size.
