Warning message

The launch of the new ALA Connect, scheduled for April 25, 2018, has been delayed due to technical issues. During final testing some critical issues related to navigation, tagging, and the structure of parent-child relationships were discovered.

The vendor is working to resolve these issues. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

While we're waiting to get started, please check out the resources and training on the support site. We'll keep you updated, in particular, we will communicate when we have a firm launch date.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Pam Akins, Community Engagement Specialist, at alaconnectmigration@ala.org.

Hi, all - 

We had very little turn-out for the virtual meeting on August 31. Only 3 members called in (2 excluding me) but we still had a good discussion.

I am adding the notes, kindly taken by Amanda, to the documents here on Connect. I will also attach them to this message for your perusal.

Two housekeeping items:

  • We will be using Google Docs (soon to be Google Drive, apparently) for all our collaborative works in progress. Please let me know your preferred email to share these docs with if you already have a Docs account linked up with one. If you don't already use Google Docs, you can set up an account with any email address, just please let me know what it is.
  • We will be using Connect for official committee documents, and they are posted in our documents section already.

You will see in the notes that we are forming two working groups to work on two projects, which Cheryl & I think are manageable within the year. Please choose a group that you would like to work with, and consider if you would like to lead or co-lead your chosen group. We'd like people to take ownership of the groups so that we can stay on track with progress and not let things stall.

Cheryl and I will be in touch soon regarding project plans/deadlines and meeting at Midwinter.

Hope your semesters are off to a good start!

Thanks for the good work! I’d like to participate in the job description sub committee if possible. I’m sorry I had a conflict for the last meeting: can we
have more scheduled?

Best regards,

Hello...I am so sorry for the extreme delay in getting back to you.  Early fall is my busiest time!  I have a google docs account...you can add flynnhol@msu.edu to it.  I am also interested in working on the job descriptions subcommittee.
