Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC)The Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) is an Advisory Non Departmental Public Body (NDPB) which advises the Secretary of State and Scottish Ministers on library and information matters. SLIC members include all local authority, higher education, further education organisations, NHS Trust library services, as well as other specialist library and information organisations.
SLIC was established in 1991 and is funded by organisational membership subscriptions. The Scottish Government partially funds the Council in its work, specifically to support local authorities in the implementation of the People's Network in public libraries and further education library and information services in the implementation of managed learning environments. The National Library of Scotland also contributes financial assistance.
SLIC works closely with the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals in Scotland (CILIPS), the professional body for librarians and information workers, sharing staffing and accommodation and co-operating on many joint projects.
