Spectrum scholars are supported by many/all ALA divisions and groups. The library Ecosystem relies on every library type for strength. LIS students are the coming strength and energy of library advocacy across the ecosystem. This intro recording offers details of some ways to build a better Ecosystem advocacy effort.
