In 2005 the Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies (ASCLA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), published the Revised Standards and Guidelines of Service for the Library of Congress Network of Libraries for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (LC/NLS): 2005. The current process of reviewing and revising the standards will conclude in mid 2011. Another public open forum is being planned for January 2011 in San Diego. Details will follow.
