Chapters Council Legislative Report

My name is Kim Copenhaver and I currently serve ACRL Chapters Council as the Chapters Council Library Legislation Network Coordinator. My responsibility is to serve as a liaison between the state chapters of ACRL and the ACRL Government Relations Committee to ensure timely and open communication regarding current and emerging legislative issues.

The ACRL Government Relations Committee takes a direct and active role in formulating the ACRL legislative agenda including objectives for legislative action at the national level on issues which may affect the welfare of academic and research libraries. I urge your review of the  2018 ACRL Legislative Agenda. I also recommend the review of the following resources to expand awareness of current ACRL positions on legislative issues of importance to academic libraries, and advocacy materials available to assist with relationship building with legislators:

I look forward to facilitating communication and support of legislative issues on your behalf throughout the coming year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with your questions or concerns.
