GODORT Federal Documents Task Force (Government Documents Round Table) Committee
Our first task is going to be to review and comment on the six statements that were advanced at the MidWinter meeting. These were disseminated at the FDTF meeting at MidWinter (and I believe that they were also available at most of the other GODORT meetings). I asked people at the meeting to send comments directly to Bernadine Abbott <email@example.com> by Feb. 10. I would like to make sure that this Task Force reviews these and sends some comments forward. As you can see, the timeline is tight. I'm putting up the Digitization Statement now, and will follow with the others.
After that (i.e. post Feb. 10) we have a question about the FDTF frequently used sites libguide: http://www.library.vanderbilt.edu/govdb/fdtf/. I would like to send feedback to Larry Romans by mid-March.
Then I would like us to work (possibly in collaboration with other GODORT committees) on a one page overview of the program, suitable for inclusion in the packets given to legislators at the beginning of the legislative session.
We also have a list of previous projects undertaken by members of our Task Force that I would like us to review and identify the outstanding projects, target a few for action, and then identify resources and strategies to move forward so that those can be worked on at ALA Annual.
Thank you for joining this group!
