FEDLINK Spring Membership Meeting

See a draft of the agenda below.

Join your FEDLINK colleagues at the FEDLINK Spring Membership Meeting to learn ways to improve your library or information center’s visual image. Robert Newlen, Head, Legislative Relations Office, and Jill Ziegler, Congressional Research Service (CRS) Management Specialist, both of the Library of Congress, will discuss the CRS visual identity project—a redesign of the CRS logo and graphics to create a consistent look easily identifiable by clients. Part of the project involved an unusual partnership with an academic design department.

Other presentations include Carol Bursik, Chair of the FLICC Budget and Finance Working Group, who will present the proposed FY2003 FLICC/FEDLINK budget, and FEDLINK managers, who will outline projects to streamline FEDLINK procedures and increase FEDLINK services. Additionally, there will be reports from other FLICC working groups including, the Education, Content Management, and Preservation Working Groups. FLICC/FEDLINK staff will report on other program activities.
