1955

1955 saw the release of a report by Cresap, McCormick and Paget to the members on the management of the ALA. The report called for a change in the structure of the divisions to the present organization. As a result of this report, since 1957, there have been divisions for type of library and divisions for type of activity. 

Please see the pages of the individual divisions for a more in-depth history of each division.
