ALA Archives | The American Library Association Archives
Name: ALA Archives
Historical Note: The American Library Association Archives was found in 1973, when the records of the ALA were moved from a warehouse in Chicago to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to be housed and managed by the University Archives. The ALA Archives consists of official records, correspondence, publications, photographs, sound recordings, films, and videotapes. Research material is arranged in five general areas: administrative and staff offices, associations and divisions, round tables, committees and members' papers, and affiliated and associated organizations (1).
