About our blogs

We publish blogs on the CILIP website to inspire and provoke lively and thought-provoking discussion about issues relevant to the library and information sector.

The blogs we publish encompass a wide range of different opinions. However, all content posted as a blog or as a blog comment are the views of the content authors, not necessarily the views of CILIP. CILIP is also not responsible for any content on external pages that may be linked to from the blog posts or comments.

Corrections and clarifications

If you feel anything needs to be corrected or clarified please notify us in the comments section for the blog post in question.

Blog comment guidelines

To help us achieve open comment and debate, we want everyone that comments on the blog posts we publish to:

  • Stay on topic - This helps keep the discussion focused on the topics raised by the blog post. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article or tweet us @CILIPInfo.
  • Be polite – Responding to different points of view in a polite and respectful way encourages multiple perspectives and lively debate. 
  • Contact our moderators if you have questions or concerns at web@cilip.org.uk.

We may remove posts or comments that:

  • Are malicious, abusive, threatening or discriminatory in nature
  • Reveal personal information or contact details
  • Are overly repetitive, spammy or not directly relevant to the issues raised by the blog post
  • Advertise commercial products or services
  • Are unlawful e.g. libellous, in breach of copyright or condoning illegal activity 
  • Are not written in English – unfortunately, we do not currently have the resource to moderate comments in other languages.

If another user flags a comment as inappropriate, we will investigate as quickly as we can. We will make a decision about whether to remove the comment based on the above guidelines
