|Abstract||Until 1972, the Library Staff Association was the only campus organization for librarians and other Library staff. It sponsored both social events and programs aimed at professional development. In 1972, the Librarians' Association at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (LAUNCCH) was established for professional librarians, leaving the Staff Association as an organization of mostly non-professional Library employees. The Staff Association ceased to function in 1996, although it was not formally dissolved until 1999. The majority of its functions had been assumed by various committees. Records include minutes of general and committee meetings, lists of staff, correspondence, reports and other files relating to projects of the Library Staff Association.|

The Library Staff Association functioned from the 1930s through 1996. It began as a service and social organization, in which membership was automatic for all Library staff. Its activities included maintaining the staff room, sponsoring social functions, and recognizing staff members on special occasions. The Staff Association ceased to function as an organization in 1996, although it was not formally dissolved until 1999. The majority of its functions had been taken over by the following committees: the Staff Development Committee, formed in 1981; the SPA Forum, established in April 1994; the Health and Safety Committee, established in November 1995; and the Employee Appreciation and Recognition Committee, established in March 1996.Back to Top
