AAP Congratulates Dr. Hayden on Senate Confirmation as New Librarian of Congress

The Association of American Publishers congratulates Dr. Carla Hayden on receiving Senate confirmation as the new Librarian of Congress. Dr. Hayden’s praise for the value of copyright in incentivizing creativity, as well as her expressed commitment to freedom of expression, freedom of information and reader privacy, during her confirmation hearing were views greatly appreciated by AAP members.

Given the importance of the Library and the Copyright Office for U.S. publishers, we look forward to working with Dr. Hayden in the critical and distinct tasks of modernizing the Library and the Copyright Office for their respective missions and responsibilities in the digitally-networked global community.
