INTEREST GROUPS provide a forum for groups of individuals who want to explore a particular area of common interest, regardless of whether the topic is explicitly aligned with a TRLN priority area.  

The desire to establish an Interest Group may be expressed by an individual or group of individuals within a member library or by a TRLN staff member.  Proposals to establish an Interest Group are submitted via the Interest Group Proposal Form and will be reviewed and approved by the TRLN Advisory Council.

Find more details about Interest Group expectations, membership, and resources in the TRLN Interest Groups Overview.
