ALA – Equitable Access

10/01/2010 01:28 PM

The American Library Association is in the process of forming a Presidential Task Force to deal with this issue.  This is the result of resolution that was passed at ALA annual in Washington D.C.  I created the resolution, along with two other librarians, in my capacity as MLA Chapter Councilor to ALA.  I’ve attached the resolution to this email, as I think that it delineates all of the access problems to e-content challenging the nation’s libraries.  The task force will report back to Council at the 2010 annual meeting in New Orleans.

  1. Good for you, Jackie! You are always on the ball, a true advocate and a credit to our library services in Massachusetts and beyond.
    Knowing that these things take time, we can for now utilize Emily’s work-around.

    Regards, Betsy
