Brian, Thanks for sharing the On These Grounds Project. What a great use of data modeling. I like how it is grounded in a highly relevant and immediate need. I will definitely be looking at it more. I really enjoyed IG week and so my vote would be for #2. I think there is a lot to leverage with participating ...

Thanks for putting this out for feedback! I would be interested to hear about the following as well. I think this is in scope because it seems that staff working with MARC data will be the first to transition to working with new forms of data.

I just got this update on my ALCTS listservs Some ALCTS members have reached out because they've heard rumors that ALA's Sympa mailing lists are going away and all groups are being transitioned to ALA Connect. We'd like to correct some of the misinformation floating around. Is Sympa going away? ...

I used to have one. I maintained and updated it for ~5 years? 2008-2013 or something like that? According to my webhost stats the pages of the portfolio beyond the landing page and the About me page were seldom visited. Like 0-2 visits a month. It came up in Google results for my name and it was linked ...

Thank you, Jim, for these insights and the Friday night reply. I can see now how this would improve the search. I stand by my vote to make the MLS preferred and not required. Erica On Nov 3, 2017 7:25 PM, "ALA Connect" < connect@ala.org > wrote: Click With Caution -

I agree with Lisa's comments and I am troubled by the assumption that someone without an MLS degree may not be able to or as committed to our values. I trust that the selections committee will select someone who is strongly committed to our profession without having a degree as a formal requirement.

After the ALA election results came out I was very concerned about the low voter turnout. My concern was met with two extreme reactions.
