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 eforum on a topic of broad interest within our area of focus;
  • Plan an in-person discussion (not a program) at the ALA Annual Conference;
  • Submit a program for consideration to be presented at the Core Exchange, Core Forum, or ALA Annual 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.
