Welcome to SCARLA9554121


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

Most recent past event: 3/31/2021 – 7:00 PM – #CritLib Collective Discussion

Join SCARLA for our first session of #CritLibCollective, a space where students, faculty, and librarians can gather for informal discussions on important topics related to critical librarianship. For our inaugural session we are reading Danya Leebaw and Alexis Logsdon’s article “Power and Status (and Lack Thereof) in Academe: Academic Freedom and Academic Librarians” from the open access, open peer reviewed journal In The Library With The Lead Pipe. The article can be accessed here: http://www.inthelibrarywiththeleadpipe.org/2020/power-and-status-and-lack-thereof-in-academe/.
Bring your questions, thoughts, and anecdotes! We are excited for the conversation!
Wednesday, March 31st at 7pm EST via Zoom.  Register for the event http://bit.ly/critlibcollective.
