The Africana Librarians Council (ALC) was founded in 1957 as part of the African Studies Association (ASA) under the name Archives/Libraries Committee. The ALC continues today as an ASA-sponsored organization. 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 convenes twice a year; in the spring at a host institution, and in the fall during the annual meeting of the African Studies Association. The UW-Madison is proud to host the ALC Spring Meeting for the first time in its history. This meeting will coincide with 50/FORWARD 1961-2011, the symposium commemorating the 50th anniversary of the UW-Madison African Studies Program.
