Special Libraries Committee

The Ontario Library Association’s Special Libraries Committee (OLA-SLC) is a group of special librarians and information professionals operating outside traditional library workspaces. These libraries operate as part of an organization, specializing in resources of interest to the organization of which it is a part, and usually serving the staff or members of this organization.

The committee advocates for awareness of special libraries and their unique challenges, and provides opportunities for partnerships and knowledge sharing by coordinating professional development events, special library and research tours, and community socials.
