the future of our practice resource centres

Libraries, or Practice Resource Centers, remain a fundamental issue of interest for FOLA and its members.  The preservation, improvement and sustainability of the system has been at the forefront of FOLA and before it, CDLPA's advocacy since before the inception of LibraryCo.  

The issues surrounding LibraryCo and the county law library system are complex and multifaceted.  This page of our web-site is intended as a resource for those looking to learn more about the ongoing debate and keep track of the latest developments.
