The coming of aging societies is a global trend and Taiwan is included as one of the aging societies, according to United Nations’ criteria. There are many social, educational, and medical issues ahead and much research is needed to form the proper policies and decision-making. This article traces the establishment and development of gerontology internationally, especially the responses from the American Library Association in forming the policies to serve the older population in recent years in the light of such social movement. The author concludes the paper with suggestions of the areas that library professionals need to consider for better services to the seniors in the future.
