    Hello Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) members, the Forward Together chat transcript, meeting summary, and original SCOE recommendation on Round Tables (Session 4) is now available on the Forward Together microsite at Many things were discussed concerning the future of round tables within ALA, including the recommendation to implement a requirement for each round table to maintain membership to at least equal 1% of ALA's membership in order to continue to exist.

    Thank you!
