ALA IT will be performing scheduled maintenance to improve your member experience at ALA.org the weekend of November 4th.
Starting at 3pm (Central Time) on Friday, November 4th through Sunday, November 6th you will be unable to log into ALA websites to make purchases, post to the Connect community, or register for professional development. All publicly available content will be accessible during the maintenance window.
We expect all services to be fully restored no later than Monday, November 7th.
Additionally, ALA is hard at work upgrading the ALA website to the Drupal 9 Web Content Management System. ALA’s goal with this effort is to build a modern, accessible, world-class site that engages members and visitors alike. The update includes easier navigation of the website, better organization of information, and improvements for mobile users. It is a long process, and the hope is for it to be completed by November 2023. This update includes migrating the YALSA website as well. There are many pages and layers, and during the migration, you may notice some differences on YALSA pages. The migrations is happening layer by layer, and members should not lose access to website.
Please also note that there is a feedback link at the bottom of every YALSA page: https://www.ala.org/yalsa/feedback. This will help the YALSA staff quickly identify the errors that need to be corrected as the site gets updated.
