Interest Groups

In lieu of face-to-face meetings at the 2020 ALA Annual Conference, ALCTS will hold a Virtual Interest Group Week, June 8-12, 2020. Registration is free and meetings are open to all.

ALCTS interest groups offer:

  • unique opportunities to be involved in the association
  • a forum for networking and for great discussions of hot topics
  • avenues for producing publications and developing and presenting programs
  • any number of subgroups, task forces, and working groups to support the group's function and work
  • a venue for people with similar interests in issues, problems, and topics to assemble

Note: As of May 2008, discussion groups were no longer part of the ALCTS structure. All discussion groups were transitioned to interest group structure, so the names of many groups were changed.
