Library and Information Research Group

LIRG was formed in 1977 to draw together professionals interested in bringing library and information research into practice. We became a Special Interest Group of CILIP, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, in April 2003.

We are bound by CILIP's General Regulations for Special Interest Groups. Our responsibilities to our members and the services we intend to offer are agreed annually with CILIP as part of LIRG's Business Plan.

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.
