You connect with people in other sectors, you don't want to take a narrow view, passionate as I am about bringing knowledge to health. It's really important that we learn from the government sector, that we learn from libraries in every sector including solo librarians, business librarians, it's really key we take those learnings and it's something we should be proud of, it's a great opportunity to do that through CILIP membership.
