DLC Vision Outline & Discussion Paper Blog – Now Available
With the advent of the Web, access to Federal Government information has expanded far beyond Federal Depository Libraries. The current environment presents challenges to Federal Depository Libraries in four key areas:
- Library Roles in the Non-Exclusive Environment
- Managing Collection and Delivering Content
- Adding Value
- Deploying Expertise
A blog has been created for community discussion of these significant topics. The use of a blog will provide the quickest and most efficient way to share comments among many stakeholders. The four key topics mentioned above, as well as the entire outline, are available for comment and information sharing through October 15, 2005. At the end of the comment period the contents of the blog will be archived and linked from the DLC page off of the FDLP Desktop at http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fdlp/council/index.html.
Another blog will be established for comments on the document developed by Council as a result of this process, following the Fall 2005 Federal Depository Library Conference.
You can comment on any or all sections of the draft by clicking on the "comments" link at the end of each topic. You may choose to comment anonymously or you may proceed with a very brief one-time registration process that will allow you to login repeatedly as the blog grows and add comments under your own identity.
