Hi, Suzanne! I suggest that you post your question to the LITA-L mailing list, or to the discussion boards here in this group.  I see that you also follow ALCTS--they also have several mailing lists, including one focussed on digital preservation.

Hey all -

A couple of us 2012 ELs have noticed that you all have almost no information about our project. I will add links and information about our project to this page (looks like I can edit it).

I had trouble digging up the materials--I'm so glad you added these links! Thanks, Jodie!

Dear LITA Board, :)
Just a friendly reminder that many of us volunteered to take ownership of an Emerging Leaders Project report/materials and do the following:

  • Review the report
  • Look for recommendations we should act on: recommendations for LITA staff, Committees/IGs, and the Board
  • Write a summary/list of these and send to the board
  • Send your findings to the EL Team members who worked on the project, just letting them know we've done a periodic review and here's what you're sending on to the Board.

Your deadline is end of business 2/28--Next Friday. No, that doesn't mean Monday morning, because I'd like to summarize them for my next ITAL President's message (first couple of days of March). :)

Here's the breakdown:

  • Project M 2011 Andromeda and Rachel
  • Project T 2009 Jenny
  • Project P/O 2010 Cody and Lauren
  • Project P 2007 Cindi
  • Project U 2009 David
  • Project K 2012 Aaron
  • Project I 2013 Zoe

Thanks for posting these notes. 2013 - Project I - "Improving Orientation and Enhancing Leadership" is especially useful to all committee chairs not just LITA members.

I LOVE that team's work, and I'm so glad people are finding it useful!

I agree - this is really interesting, and much is of relevance to other groups within ALA. Are there plans to share it more widely? I think this could be really useful as an orientation for new committee chairs across ALA (and in other professional organisations for that matter!).
