About

The Community of Industrial Relations Librarians (formerly the Committee of Industrial Relations Librarians) is an international group of information professionals from academic, union, government, corporate, and nonprofit organizations in the field of industrial relations and human resource management who cooperate on projects, share resources and information, and learn from one another.

CIRL‘s goal is to serve researchers and practitioners by collecting, preserving, organizing, and making available specialized resources using both tested and new technologies, and to encourage instruction and training in the use of such resources.

CIRL further seeks to create awareness of the problems and issues in the workplace and to improve information dissemination about them.

A brief history of CIRL was published in the April 1971 issue of Industrial and Labor Relations Review.
