Congress passes Federal Library Agency Act

I came across this article in this month’s Library Journal and it talks about the details of the new law and what it means for different federal agencies. This law is an attempt to centralize many of the library functions at many libraries nationwide.

According to the article, the agency hardest hit by this bill is the Department of Defense, as FLA (Federal Library Agency) absorbs responsibility for all domestic and overseas military service libraries.

I think this will impact5 not just federal libraries but libraries across the board in a ll areas.

Here’s the article if anyone is interested in reading:
