Library Board News


At their meeting on April 6th in Salem, the State Library Board met with Twyla Lawson, Executive Recruiter for the Department of Administrative Services and Diane Ballard, Library Human Resources Manager to begin to plan to recruit a new Oregon State Librarian this year. State Librarian Jim Scheppke has announced his retirement at the end of 2011. The Board reviewed a timetable and instructed Lawson to move ahead with an email survey of State Library stakeholders to solicit input on desired qualities of a new Oregon State Librarian. At the June 17th Board meeting, Lawson and Ballard will report on the recruitment plan progress and review the draft job posting. The Board will hear public comment, and consider adopting the final recruitment plan, job posting, and consider selecting screening panel members. The Board also spoke to Carrie Ottow, the current chair of the Oregon Digital Library Consortium, about their recent decision to deny an application
 from the State Library to become a member of the Consortium. The State Library Board sought membership to be able to offer Library2Go services to Oregonians without public library services. Ottow shared what she believes were some of the reasons why the State Library's application was unsuccessful. The Board may decide to apply again for membership in 2012. The Board also conducted a self-assessment based on a list of 15 "best practices" for state boards and commissions and determined for the third straight year that all of the best practices were met by the Board. The next meeting of the State Library Board will be held on June 17th at the Josephine County Library in Grants Pass.
