This organization is a student chapter of the American Library Association (ALA) and is affliated with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) School of Information and Library Science (SILS). All full-time and interested part-time SILS students at UNC-CH are considered full members and can enjoy all of SCALA’s events and offerings. Our purpose is to represent the ideas of the ALA at UNC-CH and within SILS through arranged activities where these ideas can be presented for and discussed by the students. We work to facilitate networking and informational events that connect these students to professionals in the field through partnerships with both the American Library Association (ALA) and the North Carolina Library Association (NCLA). Feel free to browse our site to learn more about who we are, what we are up to, and resources that can help you move forward with your professional development and career goals.
