About SLA

The Special Libraries Association (SLA) is a nonprofit global organization for innovative information professionals and their strategic partners in business, government, academic, and other “specialized” settings. If you manage information and/or knowledge resources for organizations and their stakeholders—such as business executives, government agency staff, university faculty and students, association members, nonprofit funders, and law firm partners—SLA is your professional home!

SLA promotes and strengthens its members through learning, networking, and community building initiatives. Information about the benefits of SLA membership, including reduced registration fees to attend our annual conference, is located here.

If you’re keen to develop your career and skills and help your organization succeed, don’t wait—join SLA now!
