As promised, this week we resume our CMLE communication streams! This means that CMLE staff cull through hundreds of library news items each week and pick the news we hope is most important to you. Hopefully, we offer a “manageable bite” of national, state, and regional library news and resources to academic, public, school and special library staff. Our goal is to provide opportunities to learn something new while also helping everyone feel connected to the larger library world. We share the chosen items through a weekly email message (like the one you are reading) which feeds our blog (www.cmleinfofeed.wordpress.com), Facebook (Central Minnesota Libraries Exchange) and Twitter (@CMLEMN) accounts. We use all of these options so we can connect with you where you are, when you have the time! This way, you have four possible ways of connecting with us for this information! And, by using the comment feature in three of these tools, you can interact with us and other library staff in our region. Sometimes CMLE staff will ask for your preferences for future news or programming, so please help us by using the comment feature. This year we hope to include very short polls too if that is most efficient. Too shy to go public with a comment? Or, are you wondering about how to share staffing changes in your library? Or, do you have a specific service need? Or, do you have a story to share with us to include in the Weekly Review? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 320-308-2950.
