Let Q be a strongly locally finite quiver and denote by rep(Q) the category of locally finite dimensional representations of Q over some fixed field k. The main purpose of this paper is to get a better understanding of rep(Q) by means of its Auslander-Reiten quiver. To achieve this goal, we define a category $\overline{\rm {rep}}(Q)$ which is a full, abelian and Hom-finite subcategory of rep(Q) containing all the almost split sequences of rep(Q). We give a complete description of the Auslander-Reiten quiver of $\overline{\rm {rep}}(Q)$ by describing its connected components. Finally, we prove that these connected components are also connected components of the Auslander-Reiten quiver of rep(Q). We end the paper by giving a conjecture describing the Auslander-Reiten components of rep(Q) that cannot be obtained as Auslander-Reiten components of $\overline{\rm {rep}}(Q)$ .
