American Library Association Releases 2012-2013 Annual Report
The American Library Association (ALA) has released its 2012-13 Annual Report, an overview of the association’s initiatives and accomplishments on behalf of the library profession, libraries and the public.
The report shows how ALA and its members continue to lead the way in the transformation of libraries and library services in an increasingly global digital environment. These efforts include initiatives led by 2012-2013 ALA President Maureen Sullivan, who continued the work of her predecessor, Molly Raphael, in the area of community engagement. Those efforts included the first “Leading to the Future” ALA Leadership Institute, which brought together a diverse group of 40 ALA members, who returned to their communities ready to lead change in a digital age.
