  • Support and advocate on behalf of library workers who believe that libraries are agents of social change, with the power to transform the lives of individuals and communities.
  • Develop partnerships and strategic alliances with voluntary and statutory organizations, nationally and internationally, engaged with libraries and the struggle for social justice.
  • Conduct campaigns and raise wider awareness of library and information activities that promote social justice.
  • Monitor, evaluate and challenge our professional values, with special emphasis on embedding diversity and equality across all aspects of CILIP's work.
  • Promote and work to improve freedom of access to information.
