The Library Association
The Library Association is the professional body for those working in library and information services in all sectors througout the UK, with over 25,000 members.

Established in 1877 and awarded a royal charter in 1898, the Library Association works on behalf of people who work in librarys and the people who use them to promote and maintain a healthy library system.

The LA campaigns to influence local and national government, decision makers and opinion formers about issues affecting the library world, and strives for continual improvement of standards of service.

The Library Association publishes a range of professional titles, runs regular conferences, short courses and briefings for all sectors of the profession and has its own recruitment consultancy, Infomatch, offering permanent and temporary jobs in all areas of information work.
