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.

Literary Awards Promotion: What's happening and how you can help!

Hi All!

'Tis the season for sharing and I'd like to tell you about all the great promotions we've been "sharing" with our membership and our friends on the web!

Earlier this week we sent out an email to ALA members promoting the literary awards as a go-to resource for holiday shopping for our fellow adult book lovers. We've also distributed the same information via the RUSA blog, an ALA press release and this week's AL Direct.

You can take a look at the campaign here: http://eepurl.com/sjsrD (Doesn't it look great?! Hats off to Liz!)

Here's how you can help spread the word:

  • Retweet (RT) RUSA's tweet about this (find us at @ala_rusa)
  • Share the post on RUSA's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ala.rusa)
  • Tweet and/or share/post the following information (short, sweet, to the point): "Holiday Gifting: Adult Reading Recommendations from Expert Librarians PLUS a fun event at #alamw13 - http://eepurl.com/sjsrD  #literarytastes"
  • If you have received the campaign, please forward it to your colleagues via email.

And remember, "The best way to spread bookish cheer is reading loud for all to hear!" (Adapted from Buddy the Elf).

That's it! I hope you find this useful. As always, please let me know if you have questions or comments. Thanks!
