About ARL

ARL Headquarters


ARL is a nonprofit organization of 125 research libraries at comprehensive, research-extensive institutions in the US and Canada that share similar research missions, aspirations, and achievements.

The Association's importance and distinction is born from its membership and the nature of the institutions represented.

ARL member libraries make up a large portion of the academic and research library marketplace, spending more than $1.4 billion every year on library materials.
