UNC's Old Well

Student Chapter of the
American Library Association

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill's Student Chapter of the American Library Association (SCALA) is comprised of students pursuing their degrees in library or information science. They work to facilitate networking and informational events that connect these students to professionals in the field through partnerships with both the American Library Association (ALA) and the North Carolina Library Association (NCLA). Feel free to browse our site to learn more about who we are, what we are up to, and resources that can help you move forward with your professional development and career goals.

Did you know that you're already a member of SCALA?

Yes, all full-time and interested part-time SILS students at UNC-Chapel Hill are full members of SCALA and can enjoy all of our events and offerings. Follow us on Twitter, become a group member on Facebook, or check out our events page in order to find out about the latest gatherings!
