U.S. Library Association and other national organizations to meet in Syracuse to work on library access
A group of U.N. human rights and cultural organizations are set to meet with the Syracuse University library association, to talk about the future of the library and its relationship to the community.
The meeting comes as the U.K.’s UCL, the U2O and other U.U. have joined forces with the UCL to form the U-Libraries Alliance to advocate for library accessibility and inclusion.
The U.L.A.L., the UU, the World Intellectual Property Organization and the International Library Services Council are also scheduled to speak at the meeting.
The library association was founded in 1949 and is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit public libraries in the country.
It has about 1,500 members and has about 3,000 collections in its collection.
It operates a number of branches across the country and in other countries.
In a statement to CBS affiliate WTSP, the association said it will meet with members at the Syracuse Library in January.
The meeting will be open to the public, and all of the ULS’ members are welcome.
