The Oregon State Library staff is looking for new members for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Advisory Council. We'd really appreciate hearing about any people you would like to suggest for one of the vacancies.
Please visit the Library Development Services home page of OSL at http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/ to find a link to the suggestion form under "Latest News and Highlights".
Suggestions should be made by October 26.
We are looking for suggestions for:
Public Library Representative (2 positions)
Disadvantaged Persons Representative (1 position)
Library User Representative (1 position)
Out of all the suggestions made, two people will be nominated for each vacancy. New Council members will be elected at the December 5, 2008 meeting of the Oregon State Library Board of Trustees. The State Library tries to have a good geographic representation of Oregon in the Council, which may influence who is nominated.
The LSTA Advisory Council is a 13-member body that advises the State Library Board on LSTA competitive grants and statewide programs. Terms on the Council are for three years. Elected people would serve from January 2009 to December 2011. The Council normally meets twice a year in Salem (May and September), with special meetings as needed. All travel expenses are reimbursed for Council members to attend meetings. Minutes from Council meetings, and information on Council members can be found at: http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/lstacouncil.shtml
Thank you for helping the LSTA Council represent the Oregon library community. Please contact Ann Reed at 503-378-5027 or ann.reed at state.or.us if you have any questions.
