The Board of Directors of OALT/ABO has been mandated, by the Association’s By-Law, to compile a membership directory. Given concerns regarding privacy, members elected when they renew their membership whether to have their contact information published.
|The purpose of this list is to communicate electronically with members regarding OALT/ABO and other library organizations events and activities, and to provide a forum for members to discuss career related issues. All members are encouraged to post job opportunities, meeting notices, professional development activities, and to discuss issues which are relevant to Library Technicians and libraries.
|Starting in 2021, the Board of Directors started the Lunch and Learn initiative offering Professional Development Sessions to the membership.
