Subject: ALCTS Creative Ideas in Technical Services Discussion Group at ALA Annual

The ALCTS Creative Ideas in Technical Services Discussion Group will meet
at ALA Annual 2003 on Sunday, June 22nd from 4:30 - 5:30 pm.

This discussion group meeting consists of round table discussions with
8-10 people participating at each table. We are seeking volunteers to
serve as facilitators and recorders at each discussion table.

FACILITATORS introduce the topic, ask persons to introduce themselves,
keep track of the meeting time, and, most importantly, keep the discussion
moving and ensure that all are able to participate. The co-chairs will
supply a list of questions for each topic that facilitators can use to
keep the discussion focused and moving. Facilitators may also incorporate
their own questions as well. Experience has shown that very few tables
make it through all the questions in the time provided!

RECORDERS participate in the discussion and take notes of the discussion
which will be forwarded to the co-chairs. The co-chairs will use the notes
to write a report which will be given to ALCTS. Facilitators and recorders
will receive acknowledgement in the report.

Please volunteer by June 9th by contacting Fran Krempasky,co-chair

Let us know if you have a topic preference and if you would prefer to
serve as a facilitator or recorder. In addition, a list of discussion
questions is available upon request.

For those who wish to enjoy what are always informative and lively
discussions, please join us on Sunday!
