ALA Think Tank on FB
That’s what I was thinking re: Roberta’s idea
YALSA=Young Adult Library Services Association: https://www.ala.org/yalsa/
Minutes - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-Znlc3_UQfdV3s4tt5bjGYNg0JOYFP5VNObe2oj4_bc/edit?usp=sharing
I’m also not able to hear
Maybe coordinate campaigns similar to what gpo does to solicit content
How do folks notify the committee of potential posts?
As someone who is a complete accidental gov info person I like the name haha
Has the committee developed guidelines -- best practices for sending blurbs to the Social Media and Outreach Committee? Like length, or number of words?
I think we do
Maybe quick turn around to email and others to dorm
I think a form is a great idea, esp. with character limits
That cuts the work down
Almost everything the Publications Committee does would involve social media
As a gov docs newbie/baby, I’m definitely willing to sit in on some meetings
Yes, exactly :)
That would work too.
Or invite members from other committees to your meetings
That's a good idea Samantha. I appreciated the reminders as Chair of Cataloging to reach out to Social Media, and keep them on my radar for getting the word out of what we are going. I will make more of an effort to reach out :)
Is there a list somewhere of all GODORT committees and chairs
I think listed at the top here? https://www.ala.org/rt/godort
Found it - so many committees! https://www.ala.org/rt/godort/directory
I have to step away for just a minute
This committee list will be updated soon!!
Important question: W/hen will we have the menu for the reception?
So many great memes from the ship thing
It will be light hors d’ouvres and drinkies
Should we have a social media rep on the 50th committee?
I mean, I’d do it
GODORT member of the month?
There will also be the awards winners during the 50th anniv
Would the member of the month get a virtual parking spot?
Found this on GODORT
You are not wrong
Found this on GODORT webpage, would be neat if something could bring this up to date: https://www.ala.org/rt/godort/history
completely agree~~ if GODORT only talks about FDLP, it's only going to reach librarians who already know about FDLP, which isn't reaching *out* at all.
Is there an “FDLP for Dummies” somewhere? I need to learn more about it
Andie--yes, I made note of that report yesterday or the day before (whenever it came up in a previous meeting). Updating it would be a good idea, especially ahead of the 50 anniversary.
@rachel. I don’t think so. Leg. Com has a one sheet FDLP basics that is designed for members of Congress. This might be the closest
