Are you an aspiring librarian? Are you currently a graduate trainee or paraprofessional considering an LIS degree? Are you wanting to become a professional in the information sector but not sure how to get started?

If you said yes to any of these, then FLIP is the network for you.

Getting into this career is increasingly difficult. With fewer Graduate Training Opportunities appearing, a total lack of funding for LIS courses, it can be incredibly stressful deciding on which steps to take toward establishing your career. Not to mention the overwhelming range of options for those who do undertake postgraduate study – Full time? Part time? Distance learning? Which course? All are questions that future library and information professionals ask themselves over and over. This group offers a place for people to ask these questions, and hear responses from people who understand the current climate in the sector because they’re experiencing it too.
