White House Conference on Library and Information Services Taskforce
WHCLIST was an effective force in library advocacy nationally, statewide and locally, following the White House Conferences on Library and Information Services in 1979 and 1991. With no national conferences in the foreseeable future, WHCLIST has chosen to turn its assets over to the ALA Washington Office, to transmit the spirit of committed, passionate library support to a new generation of advocates. Both ALA and WHCLIST are committed to ensuring that the American people get the best library service possible. The WHCLIST Award will be used to further these efforts.
