Abstract

The article offers a brief review and rumination on American Library Association's (ALA's) ALAConnect, an online community. ALAConnect aims to engage in ALA business and network with other members around issues and interests relevant to the profession. The author discusses the social context and implications that ALAConnect has on ALA politics and the organization's evolution, as well as some of the more apparent and concrete issues surrounding this technological implementation.
