This research provides an early overview of the history of the establishment of the Association of Indonesian Librarians as the main institution for the librarian profession which until now has continued to find the ideal form in synergy with the library science study programs as education institution that prepare for prospective librarians. This study also tries to explain the reality related to the functions of the Association of Indonesia Librarians by including several other professional organizations as equivalent comparison bodies. This research is expected to be a new foothold for reconstructing the role and synergy of the Association of Indonesian Librarians with all related institutions, both directly and indirectly, towards an ideal professional organization format.
