Welcome to Inspire

CumbriaInspire supports libraries in working together to improve access to information and learning for all.

There are now almost 4000 Inspire libraries throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. These libraries are all committed to supporting learning in its widest sense and together they provide an open route to the information and inspiration library users are seeking – wherever it may be found.

Inspire libraries include public, higher education and national libraries plus further education libraries, health related libraries and a wide range of specialist libraries. Together they provide a hugely rich and varied resource of information on every subject from Accountancy to Zoology and they are open to all to use.

To make access to this information easier, we are increasing the information held on each library to enable you to search for specific subjects and specific collections.
