The Africana Librarians Council (ALC) was founded in 1957 as part of the African Studies Association (ASA) under the name Archives/Libraries Committee. The ALC continues today as an ASA affiliate organization. Members of ASA whether they are librarians, archivists or documentalists working with materials from and about Africa, or scholars interested in the preservation of or access to Africana, may join the ALC.
