Summary of Current Activities

Hi all,

Here is the summary of our current activities. Feel free to add or edit if I forgot anything!

  1. The RSS Services to the Spanish Speaking committee designed and conducted a survey for librarians from all types of libraries working with Spanish-speaking patrons. The survey received more than 70 responses.
  2. At our committee meeting at the 2011 Annual Conference we started discussing the possibility of organizing a discussion forum based on the survey results to be held at the 2012 ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim, California.
  3. The committee revised the Guidelines for Library Services to Spanish Speakers and the Guidelines for the Development and Promotion of Multilingual Collections and Services.
