System Director’s Report:

September 2007

The SCLS Board surveys returned so far tell us that you want to learn more about what SCLS staff does. Our discussion with the Emerging Issues Committee also pointed to the need to understand new trends in library services and technologies. Let me offer a way to kill two birds with one stone (to coin a phrase).

Make a visit to the web site for “Project Play: Play more. Learn more. Fear less.”,for a great interactive example of what staff from SCLS, Outagamie Library System (OWLS) and Winnefox Library System have put together to help the library community learn about web 2.0 technologies. Go to: http://projectplay.owlsweb.info/?p=3 Weeks one and two are available as I write this and week three cannot be far behind. Participants can work through the classes a week at a time through two semesters. Many thanks to Stef Morrill, Jean Anderson, Nichole Fromm and others from our staff. Please give it a try and let us know what you think!

Also included in your mailing for action at our next meeting is our 2008 budget proposal and plan for service, along with the two revised library system resource contracts. That is probably plenty for you to read, so…

I’ll see you on the 8th!
