Activities

The group's conveners have committed to providing the following activities throughout the year:

  • Facilitate year-round discussion in the ALA Connect group;
  • Host at least one Core-wide e-Forum on a topic of broad interest within our area of focus,
  • Plan an in-person discussion (not a program) at the ALA Annual Conference;
  • Hold a virtual program or discussion during the year (not as part of a conference).

Get Involved

Interest group members do not need to be members of Core, or even of ALA. Anyone with an ALA account can join a Core interest group in ALA Connect. Conveners must be Core members, but anyone can join or leave an interest group at any time.
