The 2011 Best Practices for Government Libraries:  e-Initiatives and e-Efforts:  Expanding Our Horizons is broken into six sections:

  • EMBRACING NEW AVENUES OF COMMUNICATION
  • ADAPTING TO NEW AND EVOLVNG TECHNOLOGIES

  • PRESERVING WHAT WE HAVE AND PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE
  • EXPANDING HORIZONS

Thank for sharing your knowledge, experience, and thoughtful perspectives in this year’s Best Practices. Please don’t wait until next year’s Best Practices to write again. I invite you to be a guest author on the Government Info Pro anytime you like. I really would like to have some conference take-away posts this summer so please share some of what you learn in local programs and the big summer conferences with your peers via a short blog post for the Government Info Pro. Just send it to me in an email or as a Word doc and I’ll take care of the rest. Remember – it doesn’t have to be fancy. It could just be a couple paragraphs or five things you learned.
