Get Involved

We welcome interested librarians to join our efforts.

Politics, Policy and International Relations Section (PPIRS) is a section of the Association of College and Research Libraries, which is a division of the American Library Association. The purpose of PPIRS is to serve as an educational forum and information exchange for librarians with an interest or subject expertise in law or political science. Our activities include producing literature guides and resource reviews as well as sponsoring conference programs, discussion groups, a newsletter, and listserv.
