D.C. policy analysts provide a quick overview of policy and organizational developments in the Trump Administration and 115th Congress. Then they will transition to a deeper exploration of selected issues of particular interest to the community. The specific issues will depend on developments up to the time of the Coalition for Networked Information membership meeting, but may well include copyright, net neutrality, federal funding, data refuge/access to government information, immigration, and privacy. The conclusion will include ARL and ALA policy initiatives and plans, leading into the Q&A period.
