Projects and reviews

Our projects and reviews are delivering a programme of major and fundamental change. They contribute to making sure that CILIP appeals to the breadth of the information professions, is well governed and provides relevant and high quality benefits to members and key stakeholders.

  • Future skills project

    The Future Skills project is reviewing CILIP’s qualifications to ensure every member gets the recognition they deserve from their employers and society for a unique suite of highly valuable, relevant and endurable skills.

    This review has created the Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB) and the revised model for delivering accreditation of academic and vocational qualifications and Certification, Chartership, Fellowship and Revalidation.

  • Value of trained information professionals

    Library, Information and Knowledge professionals make a significant contribution to the overall aims of the organisations that they serve. And yet, their skill set is often over-looked and this contribution is under-valued.

    In 2015, CILIP commissioned the University of Salford to undertake a piece of research to identify what evidence exists to support the employment of trained and professionally registered library, information and knowledge professionals.

  • Workforce Mapping

    In 2014, CILIP and the Archives Records Association (UK & Ireland) (ARA) commissioned Edinburgh Napier University to undertake major research to map the workforce across the Library, Archives, Records, Information and Knowledge Management Services and related professions in the United Kingdom.
