The Newspaper Association of America (NAA) applauds today’s Senate confirmation of Carla Hayden as the next Librarian of Congress. Dr. Hayden’s experience leading the American Library Association and her work with the Chicago Public Library will be a valuable asset in heading our nation’s Library.
The Librarian of Congress is uniquely positioned to oversee the Library’s preservation objectives, as well as the implementation of copyright law by the Copyright Office.
We are pleased that the mutual recognition of expertise within the Library and Copyright Office will endure and we are hopeful that their respective infrastructure and processes can be modernized to better reflect today’s digital technologies.
We look forward to working with Dr. Hayden during her tenure.
