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.

Guidelines Subgroup meeting time Jan 8, 11AM-12p (ET).

Guidelines Subgroup:

We have our meeting tomorrow.  I did not get everything done that I had hoped, but I got a new job  and it kind of knocked me out of my comfort zone.  As a reminder, we had discussed preparing by going over the page with the resources on it, and we will be talking about who our audience is and next steps.


We will hold our meeting on January 8, 2012 in Blackboard Collaborate at 11:00 AM Eastern, 10 AM Central, 9 AM Mountain, 8 AM Pacific (I think I got those right).

Oh my goodness!  My apologies for not attending this online meeting.  I was out of the office due to a house visit by the flu fairy.  This completely fell of my radar.
Congrats on the new job, Karen!
