PAM logo

The Physics-Astronomy-Mathematics Division of the Special Libraries Association (PAM for short) was founded in 1972. We’re focused on all aspects of librarianship in the fields of physics, astronomy, and mathematics, with particular emphasis on the control, dissemination, and retrieval of knowledge and information in those areas. We have an active membership, and we meet regularly at the SLA Annual Conference, where we have a full slate of events geared just for physical science librarians. We’d love to have you join the PAM-ily!
