Hi everyone, we don't have a schedule for ALA meetings yet but I want to get us started on our tasks. First, be sure to check your contact information and let ALA know if there are any changes. We need to stay up with each other! Committee rosters are now available on the ACRL Web site, under DIRECTORY OF LEADERSHIP/COMMITTEES.  These online rosters contain the most current information that ACRL has received.  

You may know that I moved to Appalachian State University in August and am the new dean of libraries there. If you need my direct email it is ogburnjl@appstate.edu.

I plan to use Connect for communications so please become familiar with that system as soon as you can. I hope many or all of you have used it already. Documents will be posted here to support our work.

Let me know if you have questions - the process for the call for nominations will start soon. You'll be hearing more from me shortly or from ACRL staff.

Thanks for being involved in this committee. It is a real joy to honor our colleagues in this way.

I sent a comment out on Connect on the 4th but I don't know if everyone saw it. Let me know if you get this message to be sure everyone is on Connect.

Last year the committee did its work on the phone, realizing that not everyone can attend the ALA Midwinter meeting and getting a common time can be a challenge. This seemed to work well. Shoud we shoot for a virtual/phone meeting again this year?

Thanks!  I got both messages, but forgot to reply to the first.   I would prefer a virtual meeting because I don't plan to attend ALA Midwinter.  I'm looking forward to working with the committee!

Yay - we have consensus on a virtual meeting. We will get that scheduled for January as the time grows nearer. Our next task is publicity - which I am behind on! I will send out a draft for review shortly.


Thanks everyone. Joyce

I vote for a virtual/phone meeting as well. 

If there is any reason for a meeting at midwinter, I will be attending.
