Communication within the Statewide Library Cooperative

We all know the significance of this week as three RLC offices close on Friday, Aug 27. Here is an update on what to expect regarding listserv communication. Please have patience with your colleagues as these changes occur. This is an especially trying time for everyone.

- Cheryl O’Connor, Executive Director, August 26, 2010.

Communication Phase One (interim): 
until the New Website is launched

Update (9/30/2010): We just announced a request for your suggestions to choose a new name for the New Statewide Library Cooperative through the listserv.

The deadline for this name suggestion is Oct. 30. 2010. 

Currently, INFOLINK is working with the statewide New Library Cooperative Website Development Task Force on the new website design and implementation.  The Task Force consists of members from multi-type libraries and various geographical regions throughout the state.  Because of the scope and new features included in the website design plan, the new website launch date had to be adjusted to later this Fall.

Update (8/31/2010): We have encountered some technical issues with the INFOLINK listserv postings to the CJRLC and SJRLC Google group emails.  In order to avoid any further problems with mass listserv subscriptions at this time, it is decided to continue to use the CJRLC and SJRLC Google Group emails along with the INFOLINK Listserv during the Phase One period.  Please see the updated notes in the table below, and thank you for your understanding and cooperation in advance!
