Advocacy & Issues

Technical Services Advocacy

ALCTS is the premier resource for information specialists in collection development, preservation, and technical services. We are the leader in the development of principles, standards, and best practices for creating, collecting, organizing, delivering, and preserving information resources in all forms. Part of our mission is to provide advocacy tools that our members can use to explicate the crucial importance of the tasks they perform in libraries. Learn more.

Technical Services Legislation

Many ALCTS members have an interest in what happens with LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) funding, copyright, net neutrality, Library of Congress subject headings, etc., but don’t know how important it is to have a voice in the legislative process. ALCTS members, support your interests easily by capitalizing on ALA’s existing advocacy efforts. Learn more.
