About SLA Europe

Founded in 1972, SLA Europe is one of the largest regional communities of the Special Libraries Association. We are a thriving community of information professionals and organisations across Europe, representing different sectors and areas.

We regularly organise a wide range of events, including talks by leading industry experts, presentations from our members, informal networking meetups, and other social events throughout the year. We also celebrate two awards to support attendance at various conferences.

The SLA Europe Conference was thoroughly well organised with ample consideration for accessibility and privacy. The talks were an interesting range – from predator publishing in academia, competitive intelligence in the business world, an RDA cataloguing workshop, to a mindfulness meditation session.
