Abstract: The Philadelphia Chapter of the Special Libraries Association was founded in 1919 as a local library organization, the Special Libraries Council of Philadelphia and Vicinity, to promote the collection, organization, and dissemination of information to executives, research directors, and employees of industrial firms. In 1933 the Council affiliated with the Special Libraries Association, an international professional association for librarians and information professionals working in non-traditional library settings. The collection consists of publications issued by the chapter as well as bylaws, minutes, reports, and other administrative records dating from its founding.
Description: Description / According to the records of the chapter's archives committee, the collection was kept from the founding of the chapter until the 1980s at the Free Library of Philadelphia. It was moved to Friends Hospital in 1984. Records indicate that the collection was weeded extensively over time in accordance with the national association's records retention policy.
