Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups provide a vehicle for ALISE members to share ideas, plans, news, and opinions related to a particular area of interest. The groups are distinct from the usual committee structure in that participation is voluntary rather than appointive, and there is no obligation to produce anything. Special Interest Groups can parallel ALISE Standing Committees, but the two serve distinct functions and should guard against confusing these functions. Members of Standing Committees are appointed and are charged with specific tasks. Special Interest Groups are encouraged to hold discussion meetings for the exchange of ideas. Consider joining our SIG Listservs! The ALISE Listservs provides members with immediate access to a global network of library and information science professionals who can respond to queries in real time. Read more about the ALISE Listservs and how to sign up.
