The Digital Library : Library Advisory Board
The ACM Library Advisory Board is a group of librarians from around the world representing Academic, Corporate, and Government libraries focused on disseminating scholarly information to a user base of educators, researchers, students, and practitioners in the fields of information technology and computer science.
The group exists to advise ACM on economic, strategic, and technical issues related to the dissemination of ACM's publications via the ACM Digital Library and other third party electronic platforms.
The group or a sub-set of the group meets in person annually, during which topics of mutual interest to ACM and the library community are discussed, and the entire group is asked to provide ongoing feedback to ACM on a wide range of issues.
The most recent meeting of the ACM Library Advisory Board was held in New York City on July 23 - 24, 2015.
