UKeiG is a respected and well-established forum for all information professionals, users and developers of electronic information resources. We promote and advance the effective exploitation and management of electronic information and offer a wide range of resources including seminars and workshops. Access is also available to our e-journal eLucidate, our Publications and our popular series of Factsheets.

The group was founded in 1978 as UKOLUG - the UK Online User Group. It changed its name to the UK eInformation Group in 2004 to reflect changes in technology and the wider activities in which the Group is now involved.

UKeiG aims to:

  • Stimulate communication and the exchange of knowledge about electronic information
  • Disseminate high quality advice, information and publications about e-industry news and developments
  • Raise awareness of existing and new technologies that retrieve, manage and process electronic information
  • Support continuing professional development by delivering a high quality portfolio of practical and affordable training programmes and seminars
  • Encourage innovation in electronic information retrieval, management and processing
  • Support and stimulate the information industry through a range of awards and bursaries
