Special Libraries Committee

The Ontario Library Association’s Special Libraries Committee (OLA-SLC) is a group of special librarians and non-traditional information professionals dedicated to collaborating, promoting, and sharing the wealth of knowledge in our professional community in Ontario. Members come from a diverse range of fields including librarians in government, law, business and news, as well as research consultants, information specialists, knowledge workers, prospect researchers, and students. The committee hosts professional development events, article nights, community socials, and provides opportunities for partnerships and community outreach.
