News from CILIP

Earlier this year CILIP announced the launch of the “Working Internationally” project. The two year Arts Council funded project aims to promote relevant, accessible and valuable international collaboration for public libraries in England.

The programme runs from May 2019 to December 2020 in partnership with the British Library and the British Council, and aims to deliver innovative projects which promote knowledge-exchange and partnership between the United Kingdom and International Library and Information sector professionals.

Its objectives are:

  • To create a sense of focus, momentum and energy around the opportunities of international working for libraries in England.
  • To inspire and equip libraries to deliver successful international projects, and assure them that international collaboration is accessible and valuable, even where budgets are much stretched
  • To establish libraries as a vibrant and positive addition to the overall picture of international collaboration and diplomacy.
  • To promote the role of UK as an important player in international library and information communities.

CILIP sees this as Phase I of what is hoped to be a longer project. For more information see CILIP’s own pages (see link above).
