(December 12, 2019). In an effort to make artifacts from cultural heritage institutions more accessible to all, Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), the national aggregator of digital heritage collections, and the Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit that operates Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects, are collaborating to incorporate DPLA's cultural artifacts into Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. Funded by a generous grant from the Alfred P.

Core Update – 12/12/2019

LITA Blog - Thu, 2019-12-12 13:03

Greetings again from the Steering Committee of Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures, a proposed division of ALA.

Coming up this Friday, December 13 is the last of four town halls we are holding this fall to share information and elicit your input. Please join us! Register for Town Hall 4 today. ALCTS, LITA, and LLAMA division staff will lead this town hall with a focus on Core’s mission, vision, and values; benefits organizationally; benefits to members; and opportunities in the future. Our speakers will be Jenny Levine (LITA Executive Director), Julie Reese (ALCTS Deputy Executive Director), and Kerry Ward (LLAMA Executive Director and interim ALCTS Executive Director).

We’re excited to share an updated Core proposal document for ALA member feedback and review, strengthened by your input. We invite further comments on this updated proposal through Sunday, December 15.

Meanwhile, division staff will incorporate your comments and finalize this proposal document for submission to the ALCTS, LITA, and LLAMA boards by Wednesday, December 18. Then at the 2020 ALA Midwinter Meeting in January, each board will vote whether or not to place the question of forming a new division on the spring ballot for a vote by division members.

This week is by no means the last opportunity to share your perspectives on the proposed formation of Core. At Midwinter, following the vote on the Core question by each division board, ALCTS, LITA, and LLAMA will host a joint board meeting open to all, which will be an opportunity for shared reflection upon the boards’ momentous decisions. Stay tuned for announcements about further events in the spring.

Full details for all our upcoming events are below:

  • Register for Town Hall 4 on Friday, December 13, 2019, 1:00–2:00 pm Central.
  • Join #TheCoreQuestion Twitter Chat 2 on Thursday, February 13, 2020, 11:00 am–12:30 pm Central.
  • Get excited for The Exchange, which will take place on May 4, 6, and 8, 2020.
  • Give feedback any time! What could make Core a compelling and worthy division home for you?

Miss any of the discussion? Catch up here:

You can always stay up to date on the latest Core news by visiting core.ala.org, but we also need to hear from you. Members like you will shape the future of this proposed division — please participate in these conversations to help develop and refine Core’s division identity. 

Sincerely,

Your Core Steering Committee:

Christopher Cronin, 2019-20 ALCTS President-Elect

Tyler Dzuba, 2019-20 LLAMA President-Elect

Evviva Weinraub, 2019-20 LITA President-Elect
