Renowned for housing one of the largest global collections of printed and digital material, it has an impressive catalogue of over 170 million items.

The STM team assigned to the contract consists of a significant number of dedicated personnel, requiring a diverse range of skillsets, including expertise in safeguarding cultural institutions.

The contract has been awarded to STM on an initial three year period, with the option for extensions.

Perry Simpson, Chairman, The STM Group, commented: “Being chosen as the security service provider for the British Library, a notable cultural institution both in the UK and internationally, is a remarkable endorsement of the underlying confidence our clients have in STM’s capability to deliver high profile security services in sophisticated and sensitive environments.”
