ALA Connect

ALA ConnectThe American Library Association is now providing members a common virtual space to engage in ALA business and network with other members around issues and interests relevant to the profession. ALA Connect has launched its first phase of operation, in which every ALA group will have the ability to utilize the following tools:

• Posts (which are like blog posts)
• Online docs (which are like collaborative, wiki-like pages or Google Docs)
• Group calendar (for listing meetings, deadlines, etc.)
• Surveys (for asking multiple questions at once)
• Polls (for asking a single question)
• Chat room (text-based, including the ability to save a transcript of the discussion)
• Discussion forums (also known as "bulletin boards")
