Special Librarians Day - October 25th

Japanese MapleProclamation by the Canadian Library Association

Special libraries provide customized information retrieval, collection and analysis services to their parent organizations: corporations, government, and not-for-profit organizations.

Special libraries tend to be small, and Special Librarians often manage a library by themselves. They are the cataloguing, collection development, database manager and reference specialist, all rolled into one. As such, they deserve to be recognized for their significant contributions to their employing organizations and their profession.

During Canadian Library Month, Thursday, October 25, will be recognized as Special Librarians Day.

Special Librarians Day acknowledges the valuable services provided by all special libraries personnel and information specialists in Canada.

On behalf of the Canadian Library Association/Association canadienne des bibliothèques, I proclaim October 25, 2007 as “Special Librarians Day”.
