Recommended Practices

Note: The Engineering Community and the Special Libraries Association are transitioning during 2019-2020 to a smaller, more combined organization with less-discrete units.  We expect this document will be phased out in the future.

This document (PDF Version | Word Version) represents the recommended practices for the Engineering Community of SLA, which was originally established in 1941 as the Engineering-Astronautics Section and achieved Division status in 1968, renamed Engineering Community in 2020. The Engineering Community encompasses diverse subjects that represent the interests of the various disciplines of engineering and is concerned with the broad spectrum of technical knowledge pertinent to industry, engineers, and engineering education.
