A round table is a membership unit established to promote a field of librarianship not within the scope of any single division. Although it cannot commit the Association by and declaration of policy, a round table may recommend policy and action to other units. Members of ALA may join those round tables for which they are eligible by payment of the specific dues. (ALA Bylaws, Article VII).
