ASCLA Executive Committee (Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Agencies) Committee
I met online with IGARD’s two new chair-elects and we put together a preliminary process for the development of guidelines for library services directed towards people with dementia. We based our ideas on the ALA and old ASCLA documents for developing guidelines. Would you please review this document and get back to me with your comments and suggestions? These two young women are quite eager to move forward on this project and I would like to give them the support and guidance that will allow them to start working on it soon. The timeline might be ambitious, but I don’t want to discourage them in their enthusiasm right at the beginning. We may need to extend the timeline as things play out.
Thanks so much for all your help! I’m looking forward to your response.
