ASCLA voted not to formally direct me in this matter, so I am free to vote according to my judgement—which has not changed since the last time Council debated this issue. I found it regrettable that on the same day we voted to incorporate Equity Diversity and Inclusion into ALA’s Strategic Plan, ...

In an email to the Council list, JoAnn requested that we post our comments to this motion on the Documents and Discussion Connect page. In order for the the input from Councilors to be properly seen and recorded, I ask that we move this there. That's where I'm about to post.

I respectfully disagree with the argument that you need an MLS to fully care about libraries and the function they serve. I further disagree with the premises that having a business background means you won't have our interests at heart. Andrew Carnegie didn't have an MLS, but his passion for public ...

Here is what they submitted for Midwinter this year. Washington Office Report (in the same document as the ...
