From the ACRL Insider Blog:

ALA has created a community within ALA Connect so that ALA members from any interested unit or division can discuss the issues surrounding the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). This is a way toward aiding the ALA in reaching consensus on the future of the FDLP or at the very least, having a better understanding of the various perspectives held by members on these topics.

Additionally, ALA has created a webpage where various information related to this topic and the recent happenings surrounding this issue are available. If you feel that there are any items missing from this list, please let us know! We want this compilation to be as inclusive as possible of official communication. If you have questions or commnets, please contact Jessica McGilvray, Assistant Director of the ALA Washington Office.
