Copy of e-mail sent to RLC attendees

Greetings Everyone!

You are getting this e-mail because you were on the registration list for the Loleta Fyan Small and Rural Libraries Conference 2007. It was great to see so many people at the Grand Traverse Resort! If you were not able to join us, you can still take advantage of the information on the blog and on WebJunction (see below for details).

Here are some follow-ups:

1. If you submitted a CEU Record Sheet at the end of the conference, we will be mailing to you your CEU Certificate. We had indicated on the form that certificates would be mailed no later than June 9, 2007, so please know that we are working on them for you. If you have a level 7 certification that has expired since you attended the conference, you will be able to send in your re-certification paperwork once you receive your certificate and we will retroactively re-certify you if all is in order.

2. Those of you who attended both days of the Gates Rural Library Sustainability Program (RLSP) at the conference will receive a follow-up from WebJunction staff that will include a post-assessment link so that you can go in and complete this survey online. There is an incentive for your trouble - we will have a drawing from those who submit their post-assessment and you could win a coupon for free WebJunction courses. (Taking WebJunction courses will earn you CEUs.)

3. We received a lot of feedback from you via the evaluations! The conference evaluations are being compiled and, when complete, will be posted on the RLC area of the Library of Michigan website. We appreciate the time and consideration taken to provide your thoughts!

4. For those of you who did not receive a USB flash drive after the RLSP portion of the conference, we do have some left and would be glad to give one to you, while supplies last. Please send an e-mail to Jenn Houseman at asking for a RLC flash drive. We prefer to send them via MeLCat delivery, so please indicate if you are on the statewide delivery. If not, include your mailing address.

5. The content from the flash drives is posted on the WebJunction Michigan forum for rural and small libraries at You will also find other items of interest there, so take a look! Familiarize yourself with the WebJunction All Aboard community by going to the main page at

6. Finally, there are two more things to look for as follow-ups to the Rural Libraries Conference. One is that I will be posting a document of the compiled brainstorming results from the RLSP program. Remember the Post-It sheets around the room on the walls with the very colorful sticky notes? There were some great ideas captured and they will be posted both here and on the Library of Michigan RLC web site. Also, I will be mailing out to you your action plan post card(s) so you will have a reminder of your thoughts for follow-through.

If you have questions or comments, let me know! Enjoy the long weekend! -Sheryl

p.s. People are still posting to the RLC blog, so you may want to take a look there. Marian T. Librarian posted her letter to Roger. Take a look:
