Answerland is Oregon's statewide reference service, allowing everyone who
lives, works and goes to school in Oregon the chance to connect with a
librarian by live chat, email or text messaging. Answerland also encourages
every library to provide virtual reference services to their community.

The Answerland Advisory Board is seeking new members for a 2 year term,
starting in *Fall 2014*.

The role of the Answerland Advisory Board is to set the mission, goals, and
direction of Answerland, our statewide digital reference service. The board
strives for broad representation geographically and by type and size of
library. Advisors can come from any Oregon library or related organization
and have included library directors, volunteers and every role in a library
in between.

As you may know, Answerland is in a time of major transition, and now, more
than ever, needs enthusiastic and committed leaders to guide the service
into the future. Important work will need to be done over the coming year,
and beyond, as we seek to transition the service to a sustainable funding
model and a new fiscal agent. Now is the time to get involved and help
re-shape Answerland and ensure the future of Oregon’s statewide virtual
reference service!

More information about the advisory board can be found at:


Meetings are four times a year, at least one in-person, and travel costs
can often be reimbursed.

If you are interested in serving on the Answerland Advisory Board, send an
email by *July 8, 2014* to: *Jenny Pedersen*, jenniferp at deschuteslibrary.org

Please describe in about 300 words why you want to be a member of the
Answerland Advisory Board. The current board will review applications and
decide on new membership.
