Main agenda items for the October 15, 2009 meeting include the following but may be modified at such meeting: 

  • Welcome; Minutes of the last meeting.

  • Outreach strategies.  To date, we have focused on outreach  through veteran service organizations to let them know veterans have priority for the new players and books.  Are we overlooking any veterans groups?

  • We are also conducting outreach to other potential borrowers through community health fairs, and to educators regarding direct downloads from the NLS website.  Other ideas?

  • Update on digital transition.  We anticipate a shortage of digital books and players for the next few years.  At the same time, our cassette players and cassette books tend to require higher maintenance. What feedback are you receiving concerning the digital books and players and the cassette books and players?

  • Outreach during Nebraska Library Association state conference.

  • Reproduction of Materials Policy.  Revision of existing policy to incorporate new digital formats.

  • Thank-yous to committee member(s) completing their terms of service
