Library & Information Research Group

  • Address: 7 Ridgmount Street
    WC1E 7AE


LIRG supports and raises the profile of library and information science research and its use by CILIP members and the wider community.  We encourage 'research into practice' by providing activities and publications for LIS practitioners and researchers.

The LIRG committee meets monthly via zoom.  Committee members are from a range of different backgrounds and library sectors and include both practitioners and library academics providing a lively, diverse and friendly group.  A number of our committee members have taken up other roles within CILIP, so we are recruiting new committee members to fill soon to be vacant positions.  We also want to recruit to a new position to expand our member offer.  Training and support in all roles will be provided by existing committee members and CILIP as appropriate. The time commitment for all roles is approximately 1 hour per week.  This can increase at certain times of the year depending on role. If you want to gain additional skills and develop your career further, why not apply to join our committee?
