It's AVAILABLE NOW! Another website specifically designed for communication among library staff and supporters who share a common interest.
The Library Presentations Network is one of four Special Interest Groups (SIGs) created by Texas Library Association (TLA) District 7 in partnership with the North Texas Regional Library System (NTRLS). The other three SIGs are the Library Program Planners and Presenters Network, the Library Supporters Network, and the Library Technology Network.
The Library Presentations Network exists to facilitate networking among library staff and supporters involved in planning and presenting library programs.
In addition to having its own website and an annual conference, each SIG will hold periodic meetings for networking and discussion of business. Some meetings will take place online via chat. Meetings will be called and conducted by District 7 officers.
Each SIG website will serve as a gateway to information about the annual conference, additional SIG-specific resources and an email discussion list where members can network. Archives of the discussion list will be available online. Other features will be added in the future to support the online environment for peer networking.
Future plans for the SIG websites include extended features for online peer networking, such as online chats, blogs, wikis, and other Web 2.0 innovations. As each SIG website is enhanced and the other SIGs come online, members also will be able to maintain online profiles and contact lists.
To join the email discussion list for this SIG, visit the Library Presentations Network, click on "discussion" and follow the directions.
Information about the other SIG websites will be posted here as the websites become accessible.
