Library Advocacy: Home

This LibGuide has been prepared under the auspices of the Government Relations Committee of the Alabama chapter of ACRL to assist librarians, library workers, and those who support libraries in developing their advocacy skills.

Why Become an ACRL Advocate?

Serving as an ACRL Legislative Advocate is a great way to help keep our elected officials aware of how important libraries are to serving the needs of students, faculty, and staff and thus, in turn, how important libraries are to the success of our state and our country in an increasingly complex and globalized society. No political connections or great rhetorical skills are needed.  - Tim Dodge, Auburn University.
