TBLC Special Interest Groups are an opportunity for staff in TBLC member libraries to get together with staff in other libraries who share similar job responsibilities and library-related interests. These lists are interactive with the idea that members can share things they learn that would be of interest to others. If you have any questions or suggestions and would like to join any of the Special Interest Groups list above, please email Jessica Riggins , Member Services Coordinator at TBLC.
This Special Interest Group (SIG) will allow members to communicate about eBooks. If you have questions or comments, want feedback on a problem, or need a good suggestion about eBooks use this group to email and correspond with members.
Youth Services SIG
This special interest group (SIG) for Youth Services will allow members to communicate about interesting and insightful programs and activities for children, tweens, and teens in library communities. This will also be a networking tool for library staff and supporters involved in library services to youth.
This special interest group will focus on discussion of recent developments in cataloging, metadata, and the organization of information. The group email will be a place to share topics of interest on cataloging. Topics addressed might include RDA, OCLC, custom holdings, batch processing, etc. Group members are open to ask questions, share ideas, and give feedback and solutions concerning cataloging. Deborah Fritz will be the moderator of this group.
The Community Outreach Special Interest Group will allow members to share ideas on programs, services, and partnerships they have built in the community surrounding the library.
Public Library Directors SIG
Academic Library Directors SIG
This Special Interest group will be for Academic Library Directors in the TBLC region. We would like to provide an opportunity for members and non-members to communicate about the issues and opportunities confronting academic libraries in the region and state. This is a time of collaboration and we want to help bring together the academic colleges & university libraries in our region.
