Welcome to this introduction to the Africana Librarians Council (ALC), founded in 1957 as the Archives/Libraries Committee as part of the African Studies Association (ASA). Members of ASA whether they are librarians, archivists or documentalists working with materials from and about Africa or scholars interested in the preservation of or access to Africana may join the ALC. The ALC meets twice yearly, once during the annual meeting of the African Studies Association and once in the spring at the home institution of a member. These meetings coincide with those of the Cooperative Africana Microform Project (CAMP),consortium whose member institutions purchase or film research materials in cooperation. Visitors are welcome to our meetings. For more information about the ALC, please read the Bylaws or the Operational Handbook.
