Welcome to ALAIR

The American Library Association Institutional Repository (ALAIR) is an open access repository, committed to collecting, permanently storing, and providing digital access to the publications and intellectual work of the American Library Association. It is organized into communities reflecting the Divisions, Offices, Committees, and Roundtables that make up ALA.

The ALAIR is managed by the American Library Association Archives at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. We invite ALA staff and members to deposit documents directly into ALAIR. Please contact us for assistance with bulk uploads or for more information about ALAIR.
