The British Library is, as national libraries go, relatively young. Its roots lie in the report of the National Libraries Committee issued in 1969. This was followed by a White Paper recommending the setting up of a national library for the UK ('the British Library'). In 1972 The British Library Act was passed by Parliament, bringing the Library into operation with effect from 1 July 1973.
