Name of creator
The Saskatchewan Government Libraries Association was a non-profit organization established in June 1975 to foster communication between libraries within departments, agencies, and crown corporations of the Government of Saskatchewan. The organization changed its name to the Association of Saskatchewan Government Libraries (ASGL) in 1977 and was incorporated on February 9, 1977 under the provisions of the Societies Act. The executive included a president, vice-president, treasurer, secretary and editor.
The mandate of the ASGL was to assist member libraries in providing effective information and reference services to their users. The Association's objectives included assisting members in obtaining adequate staff, materials and facilities; establishing efficient methods of obtaining and cataloguing publications; coordinating planning objectives; and encouraging in-service training. The ASGL organized annual conferences and workshops, published a newsletter, conducted studies and surveys, and liaised with library organizations both within and outside Saskatchewan
At a meeting on May 30, 1985, the executive of the ASGL recommended the dissolution of the Association as a separate organization and encouraged members to join the Special Libraries Section of the Saskatchewan Library Association. The ASGL was dissolved on September 30, 1986.
