ALSC Strategic Plan: Publication of Children and Libraries contributes to ALSC core values, particularly leadership, excellence, and innovation, by publishing peer-reviewed articles on leading trends and best practices, excellent and innovative library programs, and creative solutions to problems with access, technology, etc. The journal Children and Libraries addresses many of ALSC’s strategic goals, particularly in the areas of education and access, by serving as a vehicle for the continuing education and engagement of librarians, by exploring the use of new technologies for advancing literacy and information literacy in libraries and educational settings, by promoting diversity in access to library services for various populations, including diverse ethnic groups, children with disabilities, non-English speaking children, etc., and by serving as a forum for ideas on efficient strategies for increasing service to children in underserved areas and for increasing community involvement.
