Warning message

The launch of the new ALA Connect, scheduled for April 25, 2018, has been delayed due to technical issues. During final testing some critical issues related to navigation, tagging, and the structure of parent-child relationships were discovered.

The vendor is working to resolve these issues. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

While we're waiting to get started, please check out the resources and training on the support site. We'll keep you updated, in particular, we will communicate when we have a firm launch date.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Pam Akins, Community Engagement Specialist, at alaconnectmigration@ala.org.

RUSA Shared Collections Interest Group Twitter Chat, May 13 starting at noon EST

The RUSA Shared Collections Interest Group is hosting a Twitter chat on May 13, 2016, beginning at noon EST. Join the conversation by using the hashtag #RUSASCIG. We hope you will drop in and share your thoughts!

Possible topics of discussion include:

  • What type of programs/topics would you like us to focus our time on at ALA Annual and in the future?
  • What will be the biggest issue the next five years related to sharing of collections for your library or libraries in a broader sense?
  • How are you "selling" shared print to your communities? Are you actively promoting them and if so, how? What great ideas do you have to share?
  • Occasionally the biggest confusions surrounding shared collections come from within the library community. How do we help our  colleagues discuss shared collections?

The RUSA Shared Collections Interest Group will meet in person at ALA Annual, Saturday, June 25, 1-2:30pm, in Orange County Convention Center Room W240D.
