Subject: ALA meeting: ALCTS Creative Ideas In Technical Services DG

The ALCTS Creative Ideas in Technical Services Discussion Group will meet at
ALA in Orlando.

WHEN:   Sunday afternoon, June 27th, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
WHERE:  Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes Resort, Sienna I/II

This meeting consists of round table discussions with eight to ten people
participating at each table.  We will need volunteers to serve as
facilitators and/or 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 everyone has a chance to participate.  Each table will have
some suggested talking points or questions that facilitators can use to get
the discussion started, and anyone may add their own questions as well.
Recorders participate in the discussion and take notes which will be
forwarded to the co-chairs.  These notes will be used to prepare a report
which will be posted on the ALCTS web site.  Facilitators and recorders will
receive acknowledgement in the report.
