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.

Our next theme is artificial intelligence. Submissions should be 500 to 1,000 words and should include the article title, author's name and title, and school or place of work (optional).

It's been brought to my attention that I left the old theme (artificial intelligence) in the body of the call. Just to confirm, October's theme is Library Labor and Unions.
Sorry about that!
