  • 1.  Discussion of ALA Council

    Posted Mar 06, 2013 12:44 PM

    Is the ALA Council Useless?  That's the title of Annoyed Librarian's column of February 25, which argues that "ALA members don’t care what the Council does because the Council doesn’t do anything for them."

    GODORT members contribute a lot of time and talent to ALA.  I encourage members to contact me if there are issues you want brought before Council or if you have arguments on any side of issues that Council is discussing or may discuss in the future.
