Recent action by ALA via the Federal/Armed Forces Librarians Round Table (FAFLRT):
From ALA Documents:
Resolution to Support Stable Funding for Air Force Libraries (CD43): passed
Resolved that the American Library Association, of behalf of its members:
- urges the United States Congress to direct the Department of Defense (DoD) and United States Air Force (USAF) to restore funding to Air Force Base and Command Libraries to FY2011 levels for staffing, materials, services and programs; and
- urges the Administration, DoD and USAF to develop responsible information and budget management strategies for Air Force Base and Command Libraries that align them directly with appropriated funds, rather than through base operations, where library funding is vulnerable to additional local cuts.
And then there was this recent article ….. the question remains, how to get from here to there without vital information.
Air Force pins its future on ‘strategic agility’
