About Special Libraries and the SLA

"All libraries are special, but some are more special than others".
~ J. Leide

What is a special library? Why is one library more special than others?

Over the years, many definitions of special libraries have emerged and varied means of identification. Collection size, narrow fields of interest, staff size and an emphasis on personalized service have all been used at one time or another as identifiers.
