CILIP WELCOMES LIBRARY AND INFORMATION RESEARCH GROUP VOTE FOR ASSIMILATION
Research issues are to have their own special interest group within the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals, following a decision by the Library and Information Research Group (LIRG). At an extraordinary general meeting earlier this month, LIRG members voted nem con to achieve assimilation of the Group into CILIP from April 2003.
"This is good news," says CILIP's Chief Executive Bob McKee. "Every successful profession needs a strong research culture and the establishment of LIRG as a special interest group of CILIP is a very positive step towards this."
LIRG must now make a formal application to CILIP's Professional Practice Committee and Council.
