ALA launches new web pages on WikiLeaks issues

A series of resource pages about WikiLeaks is now available on the ALA web site to provide a wide range of sources and information on WikiLeaks and the various issues raised by their release of classified information. 

GO TO: http://www.emergingissues.ala.org

Staff from the Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) and the Office of Government Information (OGR) will regularly update these pages.  Questions, suggestions and comments are welcomed.  Please note the pages for ongoing comments and dialogue.  We hope you will participate virtually - as well as anticipate broad discussion at ALA Midwinter meetings in San Diego.
