Interest Groups

Interest Groups (IGs) offer Core members outstanding networking, informational, and problem-solving opportunities. They provide a great way to begin your career of service to the division in an informal way without a heavy commitment. They also offer the library community a chance to come together to discuss hot topics of specific relevance and address pressing issues.

To join an interest group, follow the links to it in ALA Connect, log in with your ALA account, and use the "Join Community" button in the top left-hand corner above the group's name.

If you have any questions about Core interest groups, please contact us.
