ALA Policy Manual
The ALA Policy Manual includes brief statements of policies adopted by the ALA Council.
The full text of pertinent position statements, policies, and procedures is retained in the "Current Reference File" at ALA Headquarters. Outdated policies will be retained in an historical file at the ALA Headquarters. Both of these files will be available at the ALA Headquarters and at the Midwinter and Annual meetings.
The ALA Policy Manual is divided into two sections: Organization and Operational Policies, and Positions and Public Policy Statements.
Where ALA has made a position statement applicable to the operation of libraries, ALA accepts that statement for its own relevant operations.
