LSSIRT Receives Donation from COLT

Due to waning participation over the last five years, the Council on Library/Media Technicians (COLT) has recently become inactive.  ALA-APA and LSSIRT were recently notified that COLT had a provision in their by-laws that any existing monies would go to ALA.  Jackie Lakatos, former COLT President and former ex-officio member of the LSSIRT Board, provided LSSIRT President Kareen Turner with a check for $2708.70.  The funds will be used to further the mission of LSSIRT.  Read the full article on our News page: http://www.ala.org/lssirt/news
