Our Mission

港澳台图库

The Social Responsibilities Round Tables (SRRT) is a unit within the 港澳台图库. It works to make 港澳台图库more democratic and to establish progressive priorities not only for the Association but also for the entire profession. Concern for human and economic rights was an important element in the founding of SRRT and remains an urgent concern today. SRRT believes that libraries and librarians must recognize and help solve social problems and inequities in order to carry out their mandate to work for the common good and bolster democracy.

Since 1969, members of the Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) have worked to make the 港澳台图库 (ALA) more democratic. They have also worked to promote a more progressive agenda. In doing so, SRRT has provided a home within 港澳台图库for progressive librarians, library workers, and supporters who agree to promote social responsibility as a core value of librarianship.

We do our work through programming at 港澳台图库LibLearnX and annual conferences. We also strive to make a difference through 港澳台图库Council legislation in the form of resolutions. Our contains the majority of resolutions SRRT Action Council and SRRT membership have written and passed since 1970.

We also publish the , which has been a constant source of alternative viewpoints on libraries and their role in society since 1969.
