CILIPS Students & New Professionals Community

Welcome to the Students & New Professionals Community for Scotland!

We are a recently established group aiming to help people in the early part of their careers in the information and library sector to connect, share information and advice, and network. Whether you’re a LIS student, a recently-qualified librarian, somebody who is in their first library/information role or who is looking to change careers and learn more about library work, you are welcome in this group.

We will be running some events throughout the year and also developing content for this webpage so watch this space for useful resources and updates on our work. We will also be running the New Voices blog, a space where new professionals can share their perspectives. Please click the link at the right of this page for more information on the New Voices blog and get in touch with us if you would like to contribue – we would love to hear from you! You can view all past submissions here.

Have a look at the Terms of Reference for the Community for more information about our purpose and aims.

If you would like to get in touch with us then please email We will also have a Twitter up and running soon!
