Simon Healey, former Chair, was made advisor to Web Advisor Committee (WAC) for ALA.

 

Simon says that Jenny Levine is the ITS person to contact at ALA for screen readable concerns  Her e-mail is jlevine@ala.org

 

Elizabeth, ALA councilor at large, reported that ALA executive committee decided to discontinue ASCLA subsidy after 2015. Losing the subsidy will create problems for ASCLA as membership in the division is declining.

 

Simon reported on his work with the Digital Content Working Group regarding accessibility of ebooks.  The DCWG is a full ALA committee that reports to Council.  It is expected to continue for 2 years or more.

The mission statement was reviewed by all.  Many thanks to Kevin Furniss for his detailed corrections/suggestions.  Revised document is attached.  Secretary will post document to ASCLA listserv, ALA connect for comment by midwinter 2013.  At close of midwinter  the document will be sent to ASCLA board as the mission statement for the Assembly.

by Adam Szczepaniak on Tue, Jan 15, 2013 at 11:35 am

Good Afternoon,

I am still finalizing the agenda but I wanted to share one piece of information on the meeting. 

The Association of Research Libraries recently published a report from its Task Force on Services to Patrons with Print Disabilities.  Judy Ruttenberg is a Program Director at the Association of Research Libraries and served as the ARL staff liaison on the task force.  Judy will be present at the meeting to give an overview of the report and answer any questions.
