Service Model Drafts Need Your Feedback
Last week was the first time workgroups shared drafts of their new approaches to collaborative services in Wisconsin. A HUGE thank you to the workgroups and steering committee for all of their hard work to get to WLA. And, thanks to all of you that chatted with the workgroups and offered valuable feedback. It was a big step forward.
The Consulting, Delivery, Electronic Resources, ILL, ILS / Resource Discovery, and Technology workgroups presented their ideas in poster form and the Continuing Education showed a video of their ideas. All of these presentations are now available on their PLSR Workgroup pages. Workgroups are also creating short explanations, either in text, video, or audio form, to help offer a full WLA experience. And, there’s a general overview poster that explains where we’ve been, where we are now, and where we are headed.
The workgroups truly need your questions and feedback! Both will help them decide what might need to be changed and what else they need to explain and explore in order to craft successful service models. You can use the Contact form to send feedback to a specific workgroup or share general feedback. Your feedback is always welcome, but to be the most help to the workgroups, we would appreciate your ideas for the service models by the end of December.
Be Part of the PLSR Survey Panel
Looking for a way to be part of the PLSR process? We are looking for volunteers to serve on a survey panel. As the workgroups continue to develop their models, they will need to gather opinions and thoughts from the library community in a systematic way. We’ll be using the PLSR Survey Panel for this purpose. If you join the panel, you’ll receive surveys from the workgroups and project managers. You can respond to all of them or only respond to some. It’ll be up to you! It’s a great way to be part of the process and the workgroups will appreciate your input. You can also unsubscribe from the panel at any time. Sign up with this simple form.
Steering Committee Draft Minutes and Recording for 10/25/2016 Meeting
The PLSR Steering Committee met in-person at the WLA annual conference. Draft minutes and a recording of the meeting are available for your review. The Steering Committee began to map out the next phase of the project during a facilitated process with the project managers and discussed other issues related to workgroup needs and implementation planning. Minutes are also available for the WLA session, “A Conversation with the PLSR Steering Committee.”
Don’t Forget…Virtual Q and A session
Each month, one or more workgroups will speak about how their work is progressing and will ask for community feedback. There will be ample time for questions from the community. And, no matter what workgroup is taking part in the discussion, your questions about any of the service areas are welcome.
The upcoming sessions are:
November 18th, 9:30 AM, Technology
December 13th, Noon, CE/Consulting
January 13th, 9:30 AM, ILL/ILS – Discovery
