Once confirmed, the slate of nominees will be presented by the State Library staff to the LSTA Advisory Council at their May 18, 2012 meeting. Appointees will be notified by the State Library as soon as possible after the LSTA Advisory Council meeting.



Expectations

The Statewide Database Licensing Advisory Committee is required to meet once a year. Currently the committee meets nearly every quarter. Once the RFP process begins in about a year, members will likely meet more often. Attendance can be in person in Salem or via teleconference. Participation is voluntary and reimbursements cannot be made for travel, parking, or substitute staff.
