Academic & Special Libraries Section (A&SL) are a section of the Library Association of Ireland (LAI). We cater for the needs of librarians and information professionals working in academic, research, not-for-profit, corporate and other specialist libraries.
Our Committee is made up of members working in all these sectors.
Our aim is to provide a forum for discussion on issues relevant to academic and special librarians and information professionals.
We host talks, arrange training and networking and we organise an annual conference for Library & Information professionals.
