Reference Association of South Suburban Libraries

Abbreviation: 
RASSL

RASSL, Reference Association of South Suburban Libraries, is a forum for reference librarians in the southern suburbs of Chicago and provides various opportunities for increasing knowledge, sharing information, networking with colleagues, and supporting fellow librarians.

Among the group's many activities are hosting speakers on various topics related to reference work, conducting field trips to area cultural and educational institutions, and collaborating with other library networking groups.

RASSL members submit a $10.00 annual fee. This allows anyone from the participating library to attend RASSL events.
