Alan S. Inouye, Director of ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP), is the newest member of the Advisory Board of Library For All, an organization based on New York City that is developing and deploying a digital library platform for the developing world. Library For All focuses on providing access to digital content using low-cost tablets and cell phones via available mobile networks. In the latter part of 2013, Library For All successfully concluded its first pilot in Haiti.

The Advisory Board draws from a diverse range of expertise and experience, and includes senior officials from major publishing houses. Alan looks forward to working with the Library For All team and fostering cooperation within the American Library Association and the library community at large.
