Welcome to SLAINTE

As of January 2013, SLAINTE will no longer be updated and this website will be an archive of joint SLIC and CILIPS initiatives. For current information about the individual organisations, please go directly to the SLIC and CILIPS websites.

SLAINTE is an online service for library and information professionals in Scotland. This website hosts the combined work of the two professional bodies for librarians in Scotland, the Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) and the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals in Scotland (CILIPS), up to 2012.

SLIC is the independent advisory body to the Scottish Government on library matters. CILIPS is the Scottish arm of CILIP, the professional body for individual librarians and information professionals in the UK.

The two organisations worked together to support individuals and organisations working within information services. SLAINTE combines the output of both organisations up to 2012 to offer Scottish librarians a single entry point to information, resources and services.
