Welcome to SCARLA

The Student College, Academic, and Research Libraries Association (SCARLA) organizes speakers, lecture series, events, trips and workshops to promote our understanding of academic librarianship. We aim to foster community among the students, faculty and librarians at SC&I and the Rutgers Library System and participate in conferences and activities sponsored by professional organizations at both the state and national level. 

We are also affiliated with the NJLA College and University Section and the ACRL New Jersey Chapter
