In Touch With Tomorrow. Inaugural Address.
Martin, Allie Beth
In her inaugural address in San Francisco, July 4, 1975, the new president of the American Library Association (ALA) poses some questions about the library's future, its place in the community, its relationship to governing bodies, its role, functions, and responsibilities. She points out ALA's concern with these questions as reflected in the new association goals and objectives passed at the January, 1975, meeting. These goals call for ALA's commitment to user oriented services for everybody; inter-library cooperation, a nationwide information delivery system, and equal information access for all; international cooperation; intellectual freedom; and improved treatment and training of library personnel. The new president encourages the participation of ALA and its chapters in pursuing these goals and in evaluating the association's effectiveness in so doing. (LS)
