TBLC Training Facility
Changes are coming in regard to resource sharing through the agreement with OCLC – Join us for this Town Hall Meeting to discuss your library’s needs, things to consider for future involvement, and how TBLC can help make this transition as easy as possible. Any library staff interested in joining the discussion are welcome!
Ellen Mizio and Diana Silveira will lead all interested librarians and staff in the discussion about how TBLC member libraries will prepare for the changes of OCLC not being paid for by the State of Florida.
We will provide lunch for those attending. We have the room all day, so we can be flexible with our conversation ending as determined by those attending.
Date: Tuesday, July 16th
Time: Start at 10am – 2 pm.
Place: TBLC Training Facility, 10210 Highland Manor Dr. – Conference Room #100
Who should attend: Anyone you feel could contribute to discuss of the process of interlibrary loan in your institutions; perhaps those managing Delivery and thinking about the consequences of these new procedures, etc. We would like to cast a wide net of who may be interested in helping the region think strategically about what’s needed for future of resource sharing.
