Libraries Transform campaign launched!

On October 29, 2015, the Libraries Transform campaign was launched. The campaign is designed to increase public awareness of the value, impact and services provided by libraries and library professionals. Check out the Libraries Transform web site for more information about the campaign, trends relevant to libraries, how libraries are transforming lives and a toolkit with ideas of how your library can participate.

Senate Passes CISA; Next comes negotiations with House

After years of debate and much opposition, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA, S 754) passed on October 27, 2015. Amendments that were supported by the American Library Association and many coalition partners were defeated.

The Senate and House will now need to reconcile their different bills. Further action will likely not occur until late 2015 or early 2016.

For more information, see the District Dispatch article.

Your advocacy efforts to try and defeat this bill are greatly appreciated!
