"All libraries are special, but some
are more special than others".
~ Dr. J. Leide
The Special Libraries Association McGill Student Chapter provides support and leadership opportunities for library and Information Studies students. The student chapter acts under the guidance of the SLA Eastern Chapter which organizes a wide range of professional development and networking events such as the annual SLA Conference. The association as a whole is dedicated to meeting library students’ needs with resources such as scholarship, awards and stipends. Student members are encouraged to participate in SLA organized events such as guest speaker visits, bake sales, and SLA professional networking events.
SLA encompasses a wide range of professional interests, such as government, business, legal, medical, or other special libraries as well as jobs in knowledge management and business development research units. The annual Montreal fall mixer is hosted in September and all new students are welcome to participate and see what the SLA has to offer.
