e-Forums

ALA and ALCTS are committed to supporting our members, staff, and all librarians and library workers during these uncertain times. We will continue to offer online learning opportunities, including webinars and the Exchange 2020, and will do our best to accommodate the remote needs of our attendees. Please contact ALCTS with any questions or concerns.

e-Forums are two-day, moderated, electronic discussion forums that provide an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest on an ALCTS email discussion list. These discussions are free of charge and available to anyone who wishes to subscribe to the email list.
