ALA Council resolves to help libraries through budget crises


* *

"The American Library Association (ALA) Council has passed a resolution 
calling on the ALA to immediately address 'the severe national erosion 
of budgetary support to all libraries.'


In the resolution, passed July 15 at the association's Annual Conference 
in Chicago, the Council recommended the ALA develop and institute 'a 
critical crisis management approach" to remedy budget losses. This 
approach would involve an action plan to alert legislators, stakeholders 
and constituents through every channel available, including the media.'"
