OITP Advisory Committee Education Subcommittee

Charge

The office for information technology policy (OITP) advocates for public policies that support and encourage efforts by libraries to ensure free and open access to electronic information resources. It works to ensure that the voice of the library community is heard in information policy debates and to promote full and equitable public participation in those debates by: conducting research and analysis aimed at understanding the implications of changing information technology, policy, law and regulation for libraries and library users, educating the ALA community about the implications of changing information technology, policy, law, and regulation for libraries and library users, advancing ALA's information policy interests on behalf of libraries and library users in non-legislative government policy forums, and engaging in strategic analysis to anticipate technological change, particularly as it presents policy challenges to libraries and library users. To fulfill this mission, OITP conducts activities grouped into four programs: public access to information, networks, America's libraries in the 21st century, and OITP fellows.
