About

The SLA Student Chapter of the UCLA Department of Information Studies aims to inform students of issues and opportunities in special librarianship, to promote the social and professional growth of its members, and to facilitate participation in the Special Libraries Association.

Special Libraries Association (SLA) is a nonprofit global organization for innovative information professionals and their strategic partners. SLA serves more than 11,000 members in 75 countries in the information profession.

Graduate School of Education and Information Studies (GSE&IS) is a community of learning and action.  Its members are scholars, practitioners, teachers, agenda setters, and public intellectuals who research, teach, and prepare practitioners and researchers in learning and information fields in an environment of multiple constituencies.  The shared goal is to enhance the life experience of all individuals through inquiry, professional practice, and policy that lead to equitable access to quality education and useful information.

The Special Libraries Association Student Chapter at UCLA has received a number of awards from SLA’s Student & Academic Affairs Advisory Council (SAAAC).
