ABA resolution supporting work and funding of Library of Congress

“Urges Congress to approve appropriations necessary to enable the Library of Congress to adequately staff, maintain, modernize, and enhance its services, collections, facilities, digital projects and outreach efforts.”

“The magnitude and maintenance of such a unique collection brings great challenges to the development and daily administration of the collection while maintaining it for the benefit of our nation and the world. Relied on by Congress, the Supreme Court, and the nation’s lawyers, the LLC persistently faces challenges to reaching its full potential. Sustained enthusiastic support from the American Bar Association (“ABA”) and its Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress, cognizant of current conditions, remains critical.  As the need for this information and expertise grows, and new technologies emerge, the challenge of maintaining appropriate staffing and caring for collections increases.  Collections care includes that facilities are maintained and that collections are preserved, stored at optimum humidity and temperature, and readily accessible.”
