Again this year the Library has taken

significant steps towards realising the

strategy outlined in its Corporate Plan

2005/6 – 2007/8, Knowledge, Memory,

Identity. This Report emphasises how we

continue to develop our vision of creating

an open library and a digital library without

undermining the core functions which are

central to our existence. Here is proof of

our constant dealings with our users both

in the Library and remotely; our efforts to

strengthen the technical infrastructure of

the Library; and our commitment to

working in partnership with other

organisations and groups.

We record here the aims which are central

to the Library's activities and to the

strategies of the National Assembly, our

principal funding body, and we show how

we contribute to the fulfilment of those

aims.

This Report not only records the activity of

one year, but also looks forward. By the

time it is published, we expect that the

new Royal Charter of the Library will have

come into force, with consequent

significant changes in the governance of

the institution, including the abolition of

the Court and the re-formation of the

Council as a Board of Trustees. This

change will inaugurate our centenary

celebrations in 2007.

forward and looking outward at the

beginning of a new century. Its core

functions of collecting, preserving and

making available stand; but the ways of

accomplishing them in the digital age are

fast changing. We have therefore put

significant effort into the project to

establish a new information management

system, which will create more effective

and more unified ways of searching for

information about our collections,

including digital publications and

artefacts. We are also redesigning the

Library's website to enable the ever

increasing number of remote users to find

information about us. In addition, we will

be ready to face the growing challenge of

collecting, preserving, and giving access

to the digital material which we will receive

under the revised conditions of legal

deposit.

In this Report we note examples of cooperation

with organisations and

individuals, and we appreciate their

willingness to discuss and seek to

develop co-operatively, more effective

ways of delivering our services. In

submitting the Report at the start of a new

period of our history, we are confident that

we are not only celebrating the identity of

this distinguished national institution, but

also continuing to contribute to the wellbeing

of Wales and the world.

As we look forward to marking one

hundred years of our first Royal Charter

which was granted on 19 March 1907, we

may reflect on how the Library is looking

Programmes and Exhibitions

A full programme of events in the Drwm

and public areas was sustained

throughout the year. The series of

lunchtime lectures has now become an

established part of the Library's calendar,

and provides a forum for the presentation

and interpretation of the Library's

collections. To coincide with the launch of

the Encore! exhibition an evening with

Dafydd Iwan was organised, and proved

extremely popular. Among the musicrelated

films shown was Rupert Julian's

Phantom of the Opera (1925) (with live

accompaniment by Neil Brand), Gilbert

Gunn's Valley of Song (1953) and Pen

Tennyson's Proud Valley (1939). Paul

Shallcross illustrated the creation of

accompaniment for silent films in relation

to Steamboat Bill Junior (Charles

Riesner, 1928). Among other live

performances were recitals by Robin Huw

Bowen on the triple harp and Ceri Rhys

Matthews on the pipes, and a lecture by

Rhian Davies on the composer Morfydd

Llwyn Owen.

A day to remember was 9 April, when an

exhibition of photographs taken by Chuck

Rappoport in the weeks and months

following the Aberfan disaster of 1966,

Aberfan: the days after, was opened.

exhibition

These poignant yet triumphant

photographs inspired an exceptional

response from visitors, and the local

community at Aberfan gave its full

support. A book was published by

Parthian Books to accompany the

exhibition. The major summer exhibition

was different in character: Encore!

depicted various aspects of the Welsh

musical tradition, with sponsorship from

Sain and Cerdd Ystwyth, Aberystwyth. It

was a particular pleasure to be able to

display the Robert ap Huw manuscript, on

loan from the British Library: the

manuscript formed a focus for a weekend

conference organised by the Welsh Music

Institute, University of Wales Bangor. The

centenary of the birth of the actor Emlyn

Williams was celebrated in the display All

the World's a Stage, which included a

variety of items celebrating his

contribution and that of others to the

world of theatre and film. His films The

The artists of Plas Lluest

Last Days of Dolwyn (1949) and Friday

the Thirteenth (1933) were also shown.

There was great enthusiasm for

exhibitions of paintings by Keith Bowen

and Glyn Morgan and the Contemporary

Art Society of Wales, as well as for a

selection of the wartime cartoons of

Illingworth:

http://www.llgc.org.uk/illingworth/

We also co-operated with other

organisations to mount exhibitions and

display items from the Library's

collections, and the Library's presence at

the Urdd Eisteddfod, The National

Eisteddfod and the Royal Welsh Show, as

well as the outreach meeting at

Carmarthen, elicited an enthusiastic

response. Perhaps the most notable

partnership of the year was that of the

Library with Plas Lluest, which provides

services to those who have special

educational needs. An exhibition of work

by Lluest artists, under the title Aber in

summer! was mounted with support from

Prospects and Mencap.

Also worthy of note is that the Drwm and

adjacent facilities have become very

popular as venues for conferences and

meetings of organisations, groups and

societies from outside the Library, so

adding a new and important dimension to

our service to the public.

L E N S

Photographers from all parts of Wales and

beyond came to LENS, the Festival of

Welsh Photography, held at the Library on

29 October. The programme included

presentations about their work by the

well-known photographers Rhodri Jones

and Marian Delyth and members of staff

discussed some of the Library's more

interesting collections. Among those

attracted to this successful occasion was

the world famous photographer Phillip

Jones-Griffiths. It is hoped that this

festival will become a regular event in the

Library's calendar.

T h e i r P a s t Yo u r F u t u r e

During the year the Library co-operated

with the Imperial War Museum (IWM) and

the Big Lottery Fund on the 'Their Past

A new departure for the Library was a joint

project with Ysgol Gymraeg Aberystwyth,

with financial support from Cywaith

Cymru, to appoint an artist in residence,

Christine Mills. School pupils were

encouraged to create new art work

inspired by themes based on the Library's

building and collections. Christine also cooperated

with the author Caryl Lewis and

visited other schools.

The LENS festival, October 2005

ordinated a number of exhibitions and

other activities marking the 60th

anniversary of the end of the Second

World War. The IWM travelling exhibition

visited eight centres throughout Wales,

and it completed its tour at the Library in

March. 3,041 visitors were attracted to the

exhibition, including 699 school pupils, 60

teachers and many ex-servicemen and

women, who also took part in related

activities. The Library co-operated

successfully with Ceredigion Archives,

Ceredigion Library and Ceredigion

Museum.

The Education Service took a leading role

in the organisation of The Big Draw, an art

competition for people of all ages and

backgrounds. A selection of the

prizewinning entries was displayed at the

Library, which was also the venue for the

official award ceremony on 19 November.

In January, as part of the Library's Santes

Dwynwen open day, a new area, Hafan,

was opened under the aegis of the

Education Service. Hafan has been

created for the use of visitors in order to

display materials relating to the history of

The Library is responsible for two longerterm

ventures, one a programme to

digitise 6,500 images of the Second World

War period from the Geoff Charles

collection, the other a programme by

Culturenet Cymru to digitise items from

the War years which are still in private

hands. An attractive pack for schools will

be re-published for distribution to all

primary schools in Wales. This

programme records the recollections and

personal histories which coincide with

those items. Both programmes will create

websites.

T h e L i b r a r y a n d i t s u s e r s

A comprehensive survey of opinion

among academic and library staff in higher

education institutions was organised by

the Wales Higher Education Libraries

Forum (WHELF). This resulted in a full

report which suggested numerous ways

of raising awareness of the Library and its

services within the sector. The

recommendations of the report will be

implemented over the next few years.

An internal task force, chaired by the

Librarian, was established to consider

how the Library can determine the

opinions of users and non-users and

respond better to their needs. The report

produced indicated that more efficient use

should be made of questionnaires and the

information gathered through them, and

that other mechanisms of information

gathering should be considered.

An important step forward was the

formation of an advisory group on ethnic

issues. The group will meet twice yearly

and will take advice from experts in the

field to assist the Library in raising

awareness of its collections and services

among ethnic communities in Wales.

The Library decided to prepare an

application for Charter Mark, which

acknowledges standards of service in

public sector organisations. An internal

task force has been formed to co-ordinate

the work of preparing an application and

collecting together the necessary

supporting evidence.

Century, relate to the lands of the

barons of Dynevor in counties

Carmarthen, Glamorgan and

Pembroke.

• A bronze head of Professor Gwyn

Thomas, Bangor, (b. 1936), by the

The Screen and Sound Archive organised

55 events and showings, 32 of them in the

Drwm and the remainder outside the

Library, including community showings in

co-operation with Age Concern

Ceredigion. The Jerry the Troublesome

Tyke series was shown in Italy and at the

London Film Festival, and the Archive cooperated

with BBC Wales on a series of

community events, with Cyfrwng at its

annual conference, and with the

organisers of the Ffresh Festival and the

Cardiff International Film Festival. In

addition, the Archive supported the

Library's own exhibitions and events

throughout the year, and supplied

assistance of expert advice it has taken

steps to enable achievement of the Green

Dragon Level 2 standard by the end of

2006. The Director of Corporate Services

is the champion for these issues at Senior

Management Team level: he chairs an

inter-departmental working group which

focuses on developing and achieving the

related action plan. A survey by the

Carbon Trust has been completed: the

recommendations will improve the

efficiency of library equipment and reduce

carbon emissions. An initial waste survey

has also been undertaken.

Significant works were completed outside

the building. A new car park extension

was created and extra parking spaces

provided for staff at the rear. The main

drive and path were also refurbished and

resurfaced, so that the initial impression of

the Library has been significantly

enhanced. Replacement of the South

block fenestration and refurbishment of

the front steps were also begun.

The Library has engaged fully in the spirit

of the Making the Connections agenda of

the Welsh Assembly Government,

principally in partnership with National

Museum Wales. A large number of studies

have been undertaken of areas of

operation with potential for co-operation

on different levels, and several of these

will be pursued further. A joint tender was

arranged for provision of legal services

which produced identifiable savings. The

Library is engaged at a local level in

discussions with other bodies in the

Aberystwyth area on joint purchasing

opportunities and is a partner with

University of Wales Lampeter in a project

financed by the Making the Connections

Improvement Fund.

This summary financial statement is

extracted from the full accounts and does

not contain sufficient information to allow

for a full understanding of the results and

state of affairs of The National Library of

Wales. For further information the full

accounts and the auditors’ report on

those accounts should be consulted. A

copy of the audited accounts, which

contain the detailed information required

by law, Treasury guidance and best

practice, can be obtained free of charge

S t a t u t o r y B a c k g r o u n d

The National Library of Wales was

founded by Royal Charter of Incorporation

granted on 19 March 1907 (and

Supplemental Charter with further

provisions for constitution and

government on 5 September 1911). A

further Supplemental Charter was granted

on 27 April 1978. During 2005/2006 it was

funded predominantly from Government

grants provided through the National

Assembly for Wales. These accounts

have been prepared in accordance with

the Direction made by the National

Assembly for Wales with the approval of

the Treasury under Section 9 (4) of the

Museums and Galleries Act 1992. A copy

of the Direction is available from the

Church in Wales, deposited in 1944. By

direction of the Probate Division the

Ecclesiastical Probate Records were

transferred to the Library in 1945. In 1960

it was appointed a repository for certain

records under the Public Records Act

1958. Schedule 4 to the Government of

Wales Act 1998 names The National

research, as laid down within the Objects

of the Library in its Royal Charters. As

such they are regarded as inalienable and

primarily comprise books, manuscripts,

maps, paintings and sound and moving

image material which have been collected

since the Library’s foundation. The Library

has over 4,000,000 items in its collection

dating from the 12th century. The public

has access to these collections.

C h a r i t y

The Library is a registered charity, charity

no. 525775, VAT no. 122 1209 32, under

the name of The National Library of Wales.

The address is Penglais, Aberystwyth,

Respective responsibilities of the Council, the Director General and Auditor

The summary financial statement is the responsibility of the Council and the Librarian. My

responsibility is to report to you my opinion on its preparation and consistency with the full
