The Sub-Librarians Scion of the Baker Street Irregulars was established in 1967 and is the oldest themed or profession oriented Scion/Society related to Sherlock Holmes.

It is an informal group made up of librarians, library staff, and lovers of libraries who share a passion for Sherlock Holmes.

The Society's name was inspired by a passage from The Adventure of the Illustrious Client in which Dr. Watson says "Finally I drove to the London Library in St. James's Square, put the matter to my friend Lomax, the sublibrarian, and departed to my rooms with a goodly volume under my arm.”
