Want to be in on the action? Like to be part of the big picture of library services in Oregon? The State Library has an opportunity for you!
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 (including yourself), especially for disadvantaged populations. Please suggest possible people by November 15th.
Use our survey at http://library.state.or.us/services/surveys/survey.php?sid=496 to make suggestions
Out of all the suggestions made, two people will be nominated for each vacancy. New Council members will be elected at the December 10, 2010 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.
We are looking for suggestions for:
* Academic Library Representative (1 position)
* Disadvantaged People Representative (1 position)
* Library Users Representative (1 position)
* Public Library Representative (1 position)
* School Library Representative (1 position)
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 2011 to December 2013. The Council normally meets twice a year in Salem (May and September), with special meetings as needed. The May meeting may be a day and a half. All travel expenses are reimbursed for Council members to attend meetings. Funds for substitutes may be available, please contact us for information. Minutes from Council meetings, and information on Council members can be found at: http://www.oregon.gov/OSL/LD/lstacouncil.
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.
