LGBTQ+ Network
CILIP's LGBTQ+ Network

CILIP’s new LGBTQ+ Network has been established to provide guidance, support, and a safe space to share knowledge and experiences for library, information and knowledge workers who identify as LGBTQ+.

You will find full Terms of Reference for the Network, including its purpose, scope and goals, here.

The LGBTQ+ Network is free to join and open to all library, information and knowledge workers who identify as LGBTQ+, both existing CILIP members and non-members.

The Network is managed by a Steering Group, co-chaired by Binni Brynolf and John Vincent.

"Having been involved in the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights and recognition since the 1970s, I am thrilled that this initiative is now taking off – and look forward to its making a real difference!"
