How Libraries Can Play Power Politics at the National, State, and Local Levels.
Wisconsin Library Association, Madison.; Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Univ. Extension.
Immediate and concentrated effort is required to secure adequate appropriations to maintain existing library programs and to extend library services to even greater numbers of users. Though President Ford seems unreceptive, the Congress has shown itself amenable to lobbying efforts on behalf of the nation's libraries. Lobbying should begin with the American Library Association's (ALA) representatives in Washington, and those efforts should be reinforced by letters from the ALA membership aimed at congressmen and legislative staff. Additional persuasion can be acquired by enlisting the support of civic groups, educational organizations, and labor unions. (EMH)
