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

Join SCARLA on Thursday, February 23 at 7pm EST for our CritLib Collective event series, a space where students, faculty, and librarians can gather for informal discussions on important topics related to critical librarianship. For this iteration of our series, we are reading “Access is Not Problem Solving: Disability Justice and Libraries” by Alana Kumbier and Julia Starkey. Bring your questions, thoughts, and anecdotes! We are excited for the conversation!
