ACRL Standards Committee Midwinter 2013 Draft Agenda

All,

I've uploaded to ALA Connect the agenda for our midwinter meeting in Seattle. At this point, the meeting information has not changed: 1:30 - 3:00 on Sunday at the Westin in the Orcas room. I do not have any information on if we will be able to have remote participation at this point or not. If you have comments, suggestions, corrections, or additions to the agenda, please let me know.

Thanks,

Frank
