The Association of Part-Time Librarians, founded in 1988 by Marianne Eimer. As a part-time librarian, she felt a need to communicate with other part-time colleagues in the Western New York area. She wanted to provide interesting programs for a group which is often excluded from other opportunities for professional development, and she hoped to offer part-time librarians a chance to share experiences and offer each other support. For a while, the group met about twice a year, once in the fall to plan a program, and once in the spring for the program. The site has some good reading, including a Bibliography on Part-Time Librarianship, Characteristics of a Good Part-Time Librarian's Position and A Report on the 1999 NYLA Session "Part-Time, Full Value".
