2012/2013 InULA Committees

InULA was founded in the 1960s to enable librarians to work together to obtain faculty status. It continues now with two purposes: to promote excellence in library service and to provide opportunities for continuing education and professional development.

Most of the work of the organization is done by members working on committees.
