Suzan and Jessica will analyze data collected during the VPO period, develop webinars focusing on the professional development needs of this community, and draft plans for a shared online exhibit to go live in 2019.


Collection Management Interest Group:  The Board tasked ASERL staff to review and submit a new charge for this Interest Group, to focus more attention on collection assessment activities.  Volunteers from ASERL libraries interested in working on this should contact John Burger ASAP.  In the meantime, webinar development will continue in the Fall.


As always, our thanks to everyone who expressed interest in these posts.  We look forward to working together into the future.  Please let me know any questions.
