The Association of Librarians in the Jamaica Library Service (ALJAS)

The Association of Librarians in the Jamaica Library Service (ALJAS) was formed in 1975 by a group of “forward thinking” Librarians who sought to provide an avenue through which matters relating to the particular concerns of the group could be most suitably addressed. Through years of sustained effort ALJALS was able to secure improved working conditions, and conditions of service to develop and secure the professional and economic interest of its members. This initiative came out of recognition also that any advancement made by this professional /Managerial group would also lead to improved conditions for other category of workers thus contributing to the overall development of the service. One of the main objectives of the association therefore was to maintain and foster the highest standards of the Jamaica Library Service and the profession of Librarianship.In addition to being a professional association, ALJALS became registered as a trade union on November 8, 1994. The signal achievement of the association however, was the very critical role which it played in discussions leading to the restructuring of the Jamaica Library Service. This has had far reaching effects on the development of the organization. Read More....

The Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL)

The Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries (ACURIL) originated as part of a movement for Caribbean cooperation at the university level, initiated in the late l960’s by the Association of Caribbean Universities (UNICA). At that moment Sir Philip Sherlock, of the University of the West Indies, at Mona, Kingston, Jamaica, was its Secretary General.

UNICA recognized the need for close cooperation among university and research libraries in the region. It sponsored, along with the University of Puerto Rico and its Institute of Caribbean Studies, the first conference of librarians in university and research libraries of the region in Puerto Rico in 1969. This event was coordinated by Dr. Alma Theodora Jordan (University of the West Indies, Trinidad Campus), Dr. Albertina Perez de Rosa (University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus) and Luisa Vigo-Cepeda (Institute of Caribbean Studies, University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus). At that conference, an independent Association of Caribbean University and Research Libraries (ACURIL) was voted into existence. Dr. Jordan was elected the first President, Dr. Pérez de Rosa the first Vice-President of the Association, and Ms. Vigo-Cepeda, first Secretary-Treasurer. Know More.....
