Advocacy & Issues

ALCTS Advocacy, Legislation & Issues 

Many ALCTS members have an interest in what happens with LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) funding, copyright, net neutrality, Library of Congress subject headings, etc., but don’t know how important it is to have a voice in the legislative process. ALCTS members, support your interests easily by capitalizing on ALA’s existing advocacy efforts.
