There are many members who try to help with the ALA Civics concept on their own, so I’m also going to try to highlight their work, too. Recently, two great examples of this type of initiative were posted online.
- Steven R. Harris created an infographic to help explain the major pieces of ALA and how they relate to each other. It’s a great perspective, and I like that he was able to do this visually. Like Steven, I’d love to see others build on it or create their own explanations.
- Oleg Kagan ran a survey of non-voting ALA members to help determine why they didn’t vote and how ALA could improve the process. The results are pretty straightforward, and I definitely see room for improvement there. I’m pretty sure a couple of different groups within ALA will discuss the results, so I hope to report back about this topic in the future.
Have you created something that helps explain ALA or seen something useful that someone else posted? Let me know so I can help highlight it.
