Dear Oregon Library Workers:
I hope a lot of you will participate in this exercise to inform the next strategic plan of IMLS. You need to register (see upper right) to participate. As you’ll see if you go there, your State Librarian has already been an active participant. :-)

You can too. It’s fun.

I’m promoting three ideas: Libraries as essential to literacy; helping all libraries transition to our digital, downloadable, future; the state-based LSTA program that enables us to respond to the unique needs of each state.

Just do it!

Dear Colleague,

Over 500 of you have responded to our call for ideas for IMLS’s Strategic Plan at http://imls.ideascale.com <http://imls.ideascale.com> . We are thrilled with this response and inspired by the ideas you are sharing. If you have not yet taken a look, please visit the site to share your ideas and comments. You can help rank ideas by voting to agree or disagree. If you have already visited, thank you, and please consider checking back in on the community to see how it is growing.

Interestingly, the number one ranked idea is about promoting preservation of physical and digital content, followed closely behind by ideas that encourage IMLS to “cultivate a culture of planning and evaluation,” Identify and disseminate best practices to support learning” and “streamline the grants administration process.”

Other ideas highlight the roles of museums and libraries in early learning and information literacy and support a wide range of partnerships.

I hope that you will visit the site and add your voice to this national conversation.

Best wishes,

Mamie Bittner, Director
Office of Communications and Government Affairs
Institute of Museum and Library Services
