CILIP is the UK library and information association. We are the only chartered body in the world dedicated to uniting, supporting and advocating for information professionals and librarians – the people who help the world make better decisions.
Our membership is open to everyone working in libraries, information or knowledge management, data science and analytics or a related professional role.
We work with employers, learning providers and suppliers across the library and information sector in the UK and internationally to develop talent, promote innovation, encourage workforce diversity and ultimately to secure the long-term future of our profession.
Our commercial publishing and bookselling arm, Facet Publications, is the leading publisher of books for library and information professionals worldwide. We award the CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Medals, the UK’s oldest and most prestigious children’s book awards.
