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.

View the most current information about where we're at in our discussions about a new division.

    We want to make sure everyone knows that we've moved Core reports, latest updates, and the feedback form to a centralized website. We'll leave this Connect community available as an archive but will post all new information on the Core website.

    We're automatically sending email updates to ALCTS, LITA, and LLAMA members and invite everyone else to sign up to receive them, too.

    Hi Jenny, thanks so much for posting about the website (just looked through it--fantastic!) and how to sign up for the email updates. I'm still excited about the possibilities with Core and appreciate the transparency that is available to anyone interested in tracking progress.

    I just checked the sign-up link (http://ala.informz.net/ala/pages/alcts_lita_llama_new_division_discussions_opt_in) and it never happened to resolve into a web page or form--not sure if this is just me or perhaps the URL needs some help? Just checking in before I share with others.

    Thanks again,
    JW

    Thanks, John. The web page to sign up for updates looks like it's working now. Can you give it another try to see what happens?

    Hi, John, I'm also logged into Connect and using Chrome, and I can get to the correct page to sign up for the newsletter. I tried it in multiple browsers with no problems.

    Thanks for the info! I approved a pending update for Chrome and now I have access. Sorry that my local issue might have falsely concerned anyone else looking to sign up! I'll now pass that link on.

    Best,
    John
