The Libraries and Service Delivery Consultant Group conducted its first meeting on August 18 at the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE). The group includes individuals knowledgeable about libraries and the delivery of library services. Based on their legislative charge they will review options for changing library procedures and governance systems to ensure equitable and cost-effective access to library services statewide, as well as consider ways to increase access to emerging electronic services.
The MDE website will serve as the collection point for the Libraries and Service Delivery Consultant Group roster and all meeting materials. All meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 15 from 1:30-3:30 pm. at MDE.
