Why is this necessary?
Our current websites are extremely outdated and in disrepair. ALA is currently in the process of creating a new, modern website and we’re following suit with an updated, modern look and feel.
How does the new logo represent ASCLA?
The yellow, orange, green and grey solid circles of various sizes combined together creating a large circle to represent ASCLA as a division that represents inclusion and diversity with all the types of libraries and specialties that come together and work as one.
