Summary of main actions taken:

Comments/suggestions from committee members regarding the upcoming American Libraries survey should be sent to Laurie (lborman@ala.org) by end of business on Friday, August 31, 2012.

Committee members agreed to take the following steps to help generate increased awareness
of what American Libraries provides:

  • Support the magazine through at least one social media tool, e.g., liking the American Libraries page and content on Facebook,  following American Libraries on Twitter (@amlibraries), or commenting on American Libraries on LinkedIn.
  • Comment on at least one article on the website each quarter.
  • Laurie will see if she can start an online conversation (perhaps on LinkedIn) designed to draw readers into a conversation about what American Libraries provides for them. (This came from a committee member’s question as to whether American Libraries has ever prepared anything telling our readers about all the various resources we provide.)

Laurie Borman also:

  • Reiterated her previous message that she loves hearing from committee members about content and finds that sort of feedback very helpful, so encouraged members to contact her directly with comments.
  • Asked that committee members send a one-line email notifying her as soon as print copies of the magazine arrive so she can be sure delivery is occurring in a timely fashion.
