Research Output

A study of the UK Information Workforce.

  In 2014, CILIP and the Archives Records Association (UK & Ireland) (ARA) commissioned Edinburgh Napier University to undertake major research to map the workforce across the Library, Archives, Records, Information and Knowledge Management Services and related professions in the United Kingdom.
Mapping the workforce
Library, Archive, Records, Information and Knowledge professionals are developing new roles in business, industry, government, and the third sector. There are an estimated 270,000 people in the UK working in these sectors but there is no accurate picture of the workforce overall and little information on demographics.
This research has helped CILIP and ARA to better understand the sector so that we can monitor trends in the workforce, advocate on behalf of the sector, develop relevant and robust policies, and to develop better and targeted services.
