The Alberta Association of Library Technicians (AALT) is dedicated to supporting the professionalism of Library Technicians through communication, continuing education and cooperation.

AALT was formed in 1974 to help promote a wider understanding and acceptance of the Library Technician’s status in Alberta and to assist in the implementation of recognized provincial education standards. We are a non-profit organization with an energetic, dynamic and dedicated membership governed by an annually elected Board of Directors. AALT strives to:

  • address the ongoing professional development needs of our membership
  • ensure that a high standard of progressive, timely and appropriate education continues to be offered in the library information programs
  • promote accurate information on the qualifications and capabilities of library and information technicians
  • interact with other associations within the library and information field
  • provide networking opportunities within an educational framework
  • maintain liaisons with various organizations to support Library Technicians
