The Best Way to Send Large Files to ALA Staff

In case you ever try to send a large file to an ALA staff member via email, it won’t go through if it’s over 20MB in size, because files that large get blocked due to storage and bandwidth issues. However, there is a workaround – a special form located at http://cs.ala.org/upload/ – that lets you send up to three files at once to someone at ALA. (The form is so secret, it’s even called “untitled.”)

When you click on the “upload” button, the file(s) is uploaded to one of our servers where the staff member can then grab it. The script also emails the person to let them know that the file is there. Handy dandy.
