The Social Responsibilities Round Table works to make ALA more democratic and to establish progressive priorities not only for the Association, but also for the entire profession. Concern for human and economic rights was an important element in the founding of SRRT and remains an urgent concern today. SRRT believes that libraries and librarians must recognize and help solve social problems and inequities in order to carry out their mandate to work for the common good and bolster democracy.

The theme for the September 2022 issue is: Tribal libraries/indigenous populations.
We appreciate articles related to these questions: How is your library working with local, state, and national indigenous peoples? What barriers have you encountered? What have you learned?
