Day three of the conference began with the first Council session. The two main action items at Council I were the electronic communication processes for the ALA Council and a Resolution in Support of Stable Funding for Air Force Libraries.
The electronic communication item passed with minor deliberation over wording about the frequency with which communication processes would be reviewed.
I am pleased to report that ALA Council voted overwhelmingly in favor of the resolution in support of stable funding for Air Force libraries. It should be noted that this resolution applies only to Air Force libraries because these libraries are in immediate danger of losing funding.
As of yesterday morning, there were 18,185 total attendees, including exhibitors, at the Annual conference.
Yesterday evening I attended the Council forum where we discussed some of the items coming before Council in today’s session.
