ALISS (Association of Librarians and Information Professionals in the Social Sciences) is a not-for-profit unincorporated professional society. It is an independent group which was formed in April 2005 by the former committee of ASSIGN (Aslib Social Science Information Group and Network). The purpose of the group is to:
* Provide opportunities for networking and self-development.
* Offer a forum for communication.
* Create a network of cooperation and a forum for discussion about emerging issues in social science librarianship.
