This week the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) and the Archives and Records Association (ARA) published a series of 24 fact sheets on the demography of the UK workforce in libraries, archives, records, information management and knowledge management.

The data, presented in the fact sheets by sector and region, derive from the findings of the Workforce Mapping Project completed in 2014/15 by an Edinburgh Napier University team that comprised three staff from the Centre for Social Informatics (Hazel Hall, Christine Irving and Bruce Ryan) and three from the Employment Research Institute (Robert Raeside, Tao Chen and Matthew Dutton).

For further information about the fact sheets, including links to the pdfs, please see the post on Hazel Hall's blog.
