Independent information professionals go by many names: researcher, freelancer, contractor, consultant, knowledge manager, content developer, and more.
What IIPs have in common is the ability to provide timely, accurate, and actionable information, analysis, design, review, and strategy. Our members serve a diverse set of clients across a wide range of sectors—and they typically do so on a project, retainer, or hourly basis.
The Internet has enabled today's growth in independent careers. So has AIIP, where experienced info entrepreneurs network, share business development know-how, and confer on research tools and techniques.
