Paraprofessional Division

The Paraprofessional Division grew out of the Support Staff and Paraprofessional Resources Interest Group (SPRIG). SPRIG's objectives were to: support the objectives of the Georgia Library Association; represent paraprofessionals and support staff who work in Georgia libraries; offer programs of substance at the Georgia Library Association annual conference aimed at improving relationships and coordination among paraprofessionals and support staff and professional staff; offer workshops and other continuing education opportunities to paraprofessionals and support staff; encourage appropriate standards for educational institutions offering programs for library paraprofessionals and support staff; and advance the status of paraprofessionals and support staff.

In 1997 the GLA Executive Board approved SPRIG's request to become a Division of the Association.
