ASCLA Interest Groups

How to Create a New Interest Group

Create a new Interest Group by creating an e-petition here

  • Any ASCLA member may create a petition for an interest group.
  • Once you complete the E-Petition form at the link above, a link will be sent to you that may be distributed to ASCLA members, listservs, or any other group that includes ASCLA members for electronic signatures.
  • 10 signatures from ASCLA members are needed for an interest group to be formed.
  • When 10 signatures have been received, the interest group application will be reviewed by the Interest Group Coordination Committee, who will respond to the interest group creator in 14-21 days.

After the interest group is created, it will appear in ALA Connect. Any ALA member may join ASCLA interest groups by following the instructions here.
