Letters from ALCTS

From the Editor

Annual in Chicago: There is something for everyone, and it will be hard for me to pick between the offerings. I am continually amazed by the excellent programs organized by ALCTS members and the outstanding speakers they recruit. | MORE

From the President

With the end of my presidential year fast approaching, it is time to reflect on past activities, achievements, and challenges and ponder expectations for the future. | MORE

From the Office
