Process and Timeline

Nominations are being accepted online only at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SDLAC2012.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, May 11, 2012, 5:00 pm.

Once confirmed, the slate of nominees will be presented by the State Library staff to the LSTA Advisory Council at their May 18, 2012 meeting. Appointees will be notified by the State Library as soon as possible after the LSTA Advisory Council meeting.


In making appointments, the LSTA Advisory Council will seek representatives with experience in database licensing and with the use and/or selection of databases.

Involvement in SDLAC will include representing your constituent group by attending meetings, participating on a listserv, participating in the database vendor selection process, and providing feedback on the success of the statewide database licensing program.

The Statewide Database Licensing Advisory Committee is required to meet once a year. Currently the committee meets nearly every quarter. Once the RFP process begins in about a year, members will likely meet more often. Attendance can be in person in Salem or via teleconference. Participation is voluntary and reimbursements cannot be made for travel, parking, or substitute staff.
