Advocacy Committee

The Advocacy Committee is a standing committee as described in Section 7.1 of the Bylaws.


The mission of the Advocacy Committee is to advocate for academic libraries in Kentucky by:


  • Providing leadership and structure to a statewide advocacy plan that identifies key messages, such as:
    • Libraries are cultural and economic assets to our state.
    • All Kentucky citizens deserve equal access to information.
    • Academic, School and Public Libraries are complementary and essential if Kentucky is to retain and attract college educated citizens and provide a higher quality of life.
  • Promoting the value of libraries to local, state and federal agencies and legislators.
  • Collaborating with other Kentucky library organizations in promoting Kentucky's libraries and their resources.
  • Facilitating the delivery of appropriate information to our institutional administrations.

Kentucky Academic Libraries - Working For You!


2011-2012 committee charge:


To create a one-page document highlighting the benefits of Kentucky academic libraries, specifically mentioning many of the resource-sharing ventures currently in place, such as interlibrary loan, reciprocal borrowing, and KYVL.  The targeted audience for this one-page document will be high-level academic administrators, including presidents, provosts, and academic deans, who will in turn be representing library interests to other groups, such as CPE.


Formulate a forward-looking strategy.


Promote the value of Kentucky's libraries and their resources at 2012 Library Legislative Day, March 7
