The SLA Social Sciences & Humanities Community serves as a forum for the exchange of information and as a resource for enhancing skills for librarians and information specialists who may work with or have an interest in collections and resources related to the social sciences and humanities. The division is especially committed, but not limited, to serving as a resource for information professionals in non-profit organizations such as museums, historical societies, research institutions, and foundations. The ongoing purpose of the division is to enhance the skills of its members in dealing with the collection, organization, dissemination, and retrieval of material, and to encourage professional research and publication.
The Division was formed in 2018 by the merger of the Social Science and Museums, Arts, & Humanities Divisions. Read the merger document here.
