Greetings from your American Library Association (ALA) Chapter Councilor!
I have been sending out weekly updates to membership and I hope that those are helpful. A lot of things are happening throughout ALA and so I try to make sure that I get the most pertinent information out to everyone. I do plan to continue the weekly updates and eventually these updates will also be available as a blog on NDLA’s new website.
This year was ALA’s first LibLearnx! The conference took the place of ALA’s Midwinter and offered learning, as well as networking, opportunities in a variety of formats. During LibLearnx, the Council had three meetings in which reports were reviewed by committees and roundtables. Resolutions that have been brought forth are also voted on in these meetings. However, the Council ran out of time to properly discuss and vote on several resolutions. There will be another meeting in March to discuss and finalize the vote on resolutions that were not able to be voted on during LibLearnx.
For now, I wanted to share a few more ALA resources with you:
If you have any questions on any of the content that I have shared, please feel free to reach out to me.
ALA Chapter Councilor
P.S. If you attended LibLearnx, I would like to hear more about your overall experience to share with the ALA Council.
