Academic and Research Libraries Group

The Academic and Research Libraries Group (ARLG) aims to provide a focus and forum for the professional concerns and interests of everyone working in academic or research libraries, linking those with current and emerging issues and developments and the overall direction of CILIP’s corporate plan.

Our 2014 conference "Academic libraries: the final frontier" took place at the University of Sussex from 23rd to 25th June. Presentations are available via slideshare or search alrg14.
