We are the Special Libraries Association's The Catholic University of America Student Chapter (SLA/CUA).


We provide students interested in special librarianship with:

  • Opportunities to meet librarians in the field
  • Firsthand knowledge of special libraries through field trips and lectures
  • Career preparation to enter the workforce, or gain new skills
  • Interaction with fellow students
