State Librarian Appointed Federal Depository Library Council
Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks of the Government Printing Office (GPO) recently announced the appointment of Roberta L. Brooker (bio), State Librarian of Indiana, and four other new members to the Depository Library Council (DLC). Her term will begin June 1, 2013 and last through May 31, 2016.
“This new group of librarians brings decades of experience and strong leadership to the Depository Library Council,” said Acting Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks in a recent release. “I look forward to working with each of them and their Council colleagues to advise us on the changing needs of the Federal Depository Library Program as we develop a national plan for the FDLP in the digital age.”
The Council, composed of 15 members each of whom serves a three year term, advises the Public Printer on policy matters relating to the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). The FDLP provides the public with access to authentic, published information from all three branches of the Federal Government in print and electronic formats through partnerships with approximately 1,200 libraries nationwide ranging from small public libraries to large research universities.
"I would like to thank Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks and the Government Printing Office for this great honor to serve on the Depository Library Council," said Brooker. "Having worked with government documents for decades, I look forward to sharing my experience and insight with Council."
Aggregate Copy Paper Event Offers Savings for Indiana Libraries
Indiana libraries are invited to take part in the second demand aggregation event for copy paper through LibraryIndiana, a partnership between IDOA and the Indiana State Library. The volumes collected in this event will be included in a Central Indiana Education Service Center (CIESC) copy paper solicitation and will leverage K12 and library entity volumes to secure deep discounts on standard and specialty copy paper.
Over the last year, participating K12 entities have realized up to 32% in savings and libraries have realized up to 73% in savings by participating in these cooperative purchasing events. Smaller libraries that do not the minimum quantities required by this cooperative purchase are encouraged to pool resources with area schools to take advantage of these deep discounts. Libraries that would like to participate can order through www.LibraryIndiana.com from April 8 - April 19. Participation in this cooperative purchasing strategy is a commitment to buy and participants will be required to purchase by the end of the agreement’s term.
Since only one response per entity can be given we have sent this invitation to registered school business offices and library directors. If you are a public library director seeking to give response rights to another individual on staff, please email to info@LibraryIndiana.com. If you are interested in participating but do not have a username or password, please send an email to info@LibraryIndiana.com.
Please view this instructional video for more information about participating in this money-saving event. Visit www.LibraryIndiana.com to learn more about the hundreds of procurement opportunities available for Indiana libraries.
