The Quietus | Opinion | The Quietus Essay | Music For A Purpose: KPM And The History Of Library Music
Great overview of a history of library music, with some nice notes on Trunk Records' involvement in picking a lot of it up later. I love all this stuff.

BBC Radio 4 - Into the Music Library
"It's the music which has surrounded us our whole lives, but which most of us have never quite heard let alone listened to... and nearly all of it made in the UK." Two years old now, but this is a lovely little documentary about library music, with lots of interviews with composers and collectors alike; so nice to contextualise this stuff. (And: a reminder why secretly I always wanted to be a session player).
