About Us

Founded in 1927, the Cleveland Chapter of the Special Libraries Association (SLA) is one of 56 regional chapters worldwide. We have a diverse membership of librarians and information professionals employed in a variety of settings – academic, corporate, public, medical, law, media, government, museums and more.

Our geographic scope covers northern Ohio with the exception of Fulton, Lucas, Ottawa and Wood counties. Our southern boundaries are comprised of Paulding, Putnam, Hancock, Wyandot, Crawford, Richland, Ashland, Holmes, Tuscarawas, Harrison and Jefferson counties.

Membership benefits include:

  • Networking opportunities with chapter members.
  • Meetings and seminars on current topics in special librarianship.
  • Access to the discussion list, the chapter’s blog, which includes information on chapter programs and activities, and the Facebook fan page.
