Advocacy and campaigns

Access to information and knowledge makes a real and lasting difference to people, communities and organisations every day. From developing literacy skills to improving health, opening up the world’s knowledge and providing insight that supports decision-making in Government and companies - library and information professionals are there, playing an essential role.

CILIP works hard to make sure that this is recognised and supported. We do this by campaigning for change, advocating for the sector and influencing politicians and Government. Support our campaigns and add your voice. Together we can make a difference.
