we have a Friday chat coming up next week on the theme of the Depository Library Council and I wanted to put out a call for folks to help lead the discussion.
Specifically, I'd like GODORT members who have served on DLC in the past and who would be willing to talk about the experience.
No need to present anything, this is still a casual friday chat, but since GODORT nominates people each year, this can be an opportunity for folks to learn about the experience.
If you're willing to be part of this chat, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so I have a sense of whether I need to do some more targeted recruitment.
