The association publishes the quarterly Library, Journal of Library and Information Science and conference leaflets. It also bestows the annual Čop Award, named after the Slovene librarian and scholar Matija Čop, for outstanding achievements in librarianship. Two memorial foundations (Kalan and Stepišnik memorials) have been founded to honour and recognise activities that significantly contribute to the development of librarianship, particularly in the fields of mobile libraries and theory and practice of library and information science. Its activities also include professional meetings, discussions, congresses and annual international symposiums organised by students of librarianship and information science from European universities.
The Slovenian Library Association is a member of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and the International Association of School Librarianship (IASL). It co-operates with the European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations (EBLIDA) and the Central and Eastern European Copyright User Platform (CECUP) and the Central and Eastern European Licensing Information Platform (CELIP) projects. The association also collaborates with libraries in neighbouring countries and library associations in Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Italy, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Macedonia.
