finding information

Step 1: Check existing information sources


If you require information, as a first step we suggest that you check the following areas of our web site as it may have already been published.

  • What's new - this is where we highlight new additions to our website
  • Publications - this is where the Department's publications can be accessed
  • Media Releases – media releases listed by date order
  • Latest Research - here you will find the latest research projects undertaken by our Analytical Services Division and links to other sites that contain useful research and statistical information on DCMS sectors
  • Publication Scheme – the FoI Act requires us to produce a Publication Scheme, where you will find links to various classes of information published by the Department 
  • Search our reference library  – Our website has a reference library engine which should allow you to find anything on the site
  • Our Sponsored Bodies – Sometimes the information you are looking for may not be available from us.  Instead it may be available through one of more than sixty sponsored bodies.

Step 2: Make a FoI request

If you have still not found what you are looking for through the existing information sources, then you should make a FoI request.
