ALCTS LLAMA LITA Alignment Discussion

last person joined: 4 months ago 

A community for discussing the potential alignment of ALA's functional divisions (currently ALCTS, LLAMA, and LITA). Whether this would be a model for increased collaboration between the divisions or something bigger involving shared/joint membership and structural realignments, or even a full merger to a new single division, has not been decided.

    This is Thread Q7: Continuing the Conversation

    The Communications Working Group wants to keep this conversation going past today.

    What other new division topics would you like to see discussed? What's a good method for having that discussion?

    What questions do you have? How can the Communications Working Group better reach you?

    Forum Responses:

    When asked what the best communication methods might be for sharing information as the new division conversations continue, ALA Connect/email was the preferred method. It was also suggested that further e-Forums, or moderated phone/web discussions, could be used to have continued conversation as the process moves forward.
