In order to focus on the needs of each Directorate, each directorate’s representatives meet twice each year with Library staff, to review current, and to recommend new, library resources and services.
Every 3 years, the LAAB and the Library conduct a serials review, to ensure that all library subscriptions to journals, magazines, and newspapers are still relevant. During the serials review, new titles are added to the subscription contract and other titles are cancelled.
LAAB serves a critial role in keeping library collections current and relevant.
