A very short history of ALA, the latest issue of Quest and a special issue of AJAL celebrating 60 years out now.
None of us could ever have imagined how the education of our lifelong learners would have changed during 2020. We have all embraced new technology, some have worked remotely and yet we probably know more about our colleague's lives than we ever have - with cats, dogs, children, and even our elderly relatives popping in to our daily online meetings via Zoom, Teams, or similar platforms.
