Library and Information Research Group

LIRG was formed in 1977 to bring together those interested in bringing library and information research into practice. We became a Special Interest Group of CILIP (Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals) in April 2003 and as such have to abide by the CILIP Regulations governing the Special Interest Groups. These rules however are being reviewed as part of the CILIP Branches and Groups review - Building a sustainable network: CILIP Branch and Group Review.

LIRG Mission

LIRG will support and raise the profile of library and information science research and its use by CILIP LIRG members and the wider community. It will provide relevant and high quality activities and publications for practitioners and researchers which will encourage 'research into practice' and involve wider stakeholders.
