We cover a large area, which includes Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire & Isle of Wight and the Thames Valley. For more information on how to get involved locally, check out the links to our sub-networks further down the page. 

Bursaries are available to CILIP members living, working or studying within the South East Member Network to attend training events. All library and information-related events such as study days, workshops and conferences will be considered.
