Facts Matter

CILIP Member Networks supporting Facts Matter

Take a stand: #FactsMatter

Our Facts Matter campaign champions the value of quality information and evidence for learning, to our economy, to health and healthcare, in democracy and for equal, inclusive communities. 

We're asking the library, information and knowledge to take a stand with us to show that #FactsMatter.

If you are attending CILIP Conference 2017 in Manchester, please come and see us on the CILIP stand, where we'd love you to join in and take an action to support #FactsMatter.

Facts Matter and the 2017 General Election

With an urgent need for reliable information and evidence in political debate and democratic decision-making, in the run up to the 2017 General Election CILIP and our members asked political parties and candidates to endorse the vital role of facts and evidence in public life.

We called on them to take a public pledge that ‘Facts matter’ and to declare their commitment to running an evidence-based election campaign. You can see the responses below.
