Highlighting development opportunities for library staff and news and views in UK Libraries and HE

The professional body for the library and information profession is the Chartered Institute for Library and Information Professionals (CILIP).


CILIP membership is open to everyone working with information, knowledge, data or libraries. CILIP aims to support, unite and develop information professionals and librarians. Find out more about their mission and the team.

CILIP Chartership and Revalidation

CILIP has three levels of registration: Certification, Chartership and Fellowship.

CILIP is also encouraging registered members to revalidate. Revalidation ensures you get professional recognition for keeping your skills up-to-date and staying in touch with the latest developments in the profession.

There is a library support group to help you! 

The Library will pay the registration and submission fees for CILIP certification, chartership and fellowship.

You are entitled to two study days for the writing up stage of these accreditations. Please discuss this with your line mananger.
