Welcome! to the 2007 RLC blog

Planning is now underway for the 2007 Loleta Fyan Rural Libraries Conference.

The 2007 theme, Rural Libraries 2.0, reflects both our rich past and the exciting future. Why 2.0? Much more on this concept later, but the brief explanation is that we are all engaged in creating the 21st century version of the public library. What will the 2.0 version of Michigan small and rural libraries look like? That is totally up to us!

I encourage you to bookmark this blog (or subscribe to the RSS feed) and come back often. Have an idea? Want to get involved? Leave a comment or send an email to bacon-zieglerd@michigan.gov.

Best,
Deb

Can rural community college libraries play, too? Considering the scarcity of resources, cooperation (public, school, college/university, law and medical libraries) might be the way to provide improved services.

Absolutely! Start thinking of possible topics and presenters for your program proposal.
