To provide a neutral space for library and information professionals to publish blog posts on a range of wider information issues

Neutrality is the main guiding principle of this project. It has been started by a small group of like-minded people, it is not affiliated to any groups. Our editorial process will involve volunteer editors reviewing posts prior to publication to ensure that posts are not libellous, slanderous or contain ad hominem attacks. People commenting on posts are also be required to adhere to these basic rules. Editors will not change the content of posts unless these rules are breached and will remain ideologically neutral.

To be outward-looking in our content

This blog will focus on wider information issues, highlighting the relevance to and impact of library and information professionals on society. There are lots of great blogs that are addressing key issues within the profession and our uniqueness will be this outward-looking focus.

To create an audience within and outside of the profession

Attracting an audience both within and outside of the profession is vital as this broad audience will enable us to to demonstrate the relevance to and impact on society of library and information professionals.
