NEO-RLS News-June 29, 2020

A Note from the Executive Director, Betsy Lantz

Aside from providing continuing education, the staff at NEO-RLS also strives to be continual learners in order to improve on what we do and how we do it.  This week’s newsletter is a perfect example of that.  As you will hopefully have noticed immediately, the newsletter’s appearance is very different from those in the past as it includes a much better balance of graphics and text.  In addition, we are going to be grouping articles on like topics together for your convenience and have abbreviated the text information for items so you can click through if you are interested or easily scroll through if you are not.  We have included our tagline at the top along with our web address and have also made our logo clickable to access the website.  We know that many of you rely on the newsletter to provide information on the learning opportunities available and we want it to be useful and easy to use for everyone.  A huge thank you and credit for the redesign goes to the members of our Ad Hoc Marketing/PR Committee for all of their insightful suggestions and their collective expertise!  We couldn’t have done it without them and will continue to rely on them for further improvements.  If you have suggestions regarding the newsletter, let me know.  If you would like to be part of the team that provides ideas to help NEO-RLS evolve and grow in service to its members, let me know.  We will be recruiting volunteers for our Board Committees next month and would love to have you join us.  Together we are maximizing library potential!  Stay well and have a great July 4th!
