Who are we?
The North Carolina Special Libraries Association represents librarians and information professionals who work in large and small corporations and organizations. You can find our members working as directors, managers, researchers, and specialists in information centers, knowledge management departments, professional online and consultants’ services, academic and government institutions, law firms, agencies, and much more.
Who do we serve?
Our chapter is an advocate for both members and the places that employee them.
- For our members we offer networking, workshops, knowledge sharing, continued education, job referrals, and more
- For our businesses we provide venues for promoting products and services, advertising, lead generating, and recruiting.
Why are we called “special” librarians?
The term “Special” refers to the specialized or specialist services we offer.
Librarians and information professionals can help improve strategic decision making in an effort to generate or retain revenue through due diligence, knowledge management and/or dissemination of information which may include information collecting, gathering, administrating, managing, referring, researching, analyzing, collaborating, marketing, web designing or developing, testing, and purchasing.
