A new advocacy website for the ALA

ALA has a new online legislative action center. The site is located here: http://www.onlineadvocacy.net/.

Please note that the new legislative action center requires users to register and create a user name and password because lawmakers are requiring legitimate e-mail addresses to avoid spam. (Can you imagine how much spam they get???)

Some of the topics include EPA Libraries, Digital Media Consumer Rights Act of 2005 (Fair Use Bill - H.R. 1201), and the FOIA Act.

The new ALA e-advocacy site will be officially introduced April 24, 2006.

Comments or questions about this site may be sent to
ehaggerty@alawash.org or bmurphy@alawash.org.
