Issue Briefs - for Annual - June 2010

We would like to refer you all to the latest Issue Briefs on federal legislative issues on the ALA web site at:


As at other recent conferences, these are available only online.  We also know that due to hearings and markups on Thursday and Friday, June 24 and 25, there will be last minute changes on some of the Issue Briefs, probably on Broadband and on Surveillance/Privacy.  Such changes will be done online as soon as we get the information.
